Hi all. I was diagnosed with a 4mm stone 3 weeks ago when I went to the ER with horrible pain on the right side of my waist line ( had a CT scan done . This is my first stone. The doctor said that the stone is a few centimeters from entering the bladder. I was sent home with some pain killers and scheduled a follow up with my urologist.
I have a few questions. I have not been in any pain since the ER visit, but I have pressure in my bladder area which is driving me nuts. It feels like something is poking my bladder. Is this an indication that the stone has passed into my bladder? I also have frequent urges to urinate. Normally I urinate one every 3-4 hours but lately it seems like I have to go all the time or have the feeling of having to go. I also noticed that my stream is somewhat weaker then normal which is stressing me out because if my stream is weak I am afraid I may not be able to pass the stone because there is not enough pressure to shoot the stone out.
I have a follow up with my urologist in 5 days to review the KUB ( I think that's what it is called ) xray In have done a week ago to see if the stone has moved since the CT at the ER.
Any insight or knowledge for a nervous newbie?? Thanks for reading this.
