Chronic kidney stones, sediment in urine?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I found out a while ago that I have chronic kidney stones. I've had this pain in my side for 7 years and they finally found out I have kidney stones. Fortunately mine are small so I don't know when I pass them. I do however get awful pains in my side like Im being stabbed. Today I noticed there was this grayish dark sediment in my urine. Kinda looked like a small amount of sand that sunk to the bottom, was this a dissolved kidney stone?

    No idea sorry.

    I have a large kidney stone which I am hoping the surgeon will remove surgically at some point but no date for this yet.

    There is usually blood in my urine samples but this is not always visible to me.

    Hope you mange to pass these stones.

    Take care and keep in touch

    Hi Ava  

    My best guess would be that these were particles of old stones that look like grains of sand.  There can also be

    dead cell tissues that sloughed off.  Most of the time when you see sediment in urine, it means a UTI.

    Since you have constant stones, as I do as well, if can be common to get urinary tract infections.  You said that you have awful stabbing pains in your sides.  Anytime you have pain like that, it's not normal and there can be

    some damage that is being done.  I would at least get a blood test and urine test to check for any infection.

    Have you had a recent CT scan of abdomen and pelvis ?   Make an appointment to a Urologist and get checked out.  In the mean time I suggest drinking 3 parts cranberry juice to 1 part lemon juice.  There also is an Herb, it is called Chanca Piedra.  It will help the kidneys.  Best Wishes to You, and keep us updated.  cool

    Could be sediment. The smaller the stones, the easier they are to pass.

    If it was reddish at all, get a check to see if it is an infection.

    Make sure you always drink plenty of water as this helps to avoid stones from growing, and to flush away the sediment.
