Just in a bit of a tricky situation and I do not really know what my next step to take is ..
I have seen a first specialist and did a CT scan, I had a 5mm stone in the right kidney which the size was apparently uncalled for an exaggerated. I have a Lithotripsy following that.
Then I did a follow up scan a month later which the radiologist report said the stone was 5mm in the right kidney and also had one in the left kidney.
I then saw the first specialist who said the sizes were uncalled for and he cannot see a stone in the left kidney and the stone in the right kidney which was most likely 2-3mm and will need another lithotripsy .
I decided to get a second opinion from another specialist who this one said that there is no stone whatsoever on the left side by looking at the scans, and the one in my right kidney is most likely going to be 1mm and he does not want whatsoever to do any procedure as it will most likely go away on its own not causing any pain.
Who do I believe ? ... I am completely lost. Should I go get another scan done, interpret it by another radiologist (maybe better) ? And then maybe see another specialist ?
I am not in pain, I am just worried about having a bad surprise one day and be in the pain everyone mentions ... I just want them out of my body but the new specialist said it's completely unecessary and a complete waste of time and money to do any procedure on something that small.
I feel like I am having trust issues and need to see another specialist ... But where does this end ...
