Kidney Stone they think.......

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi i wounder if any of you may have had what i have....My story sorry but then you will understand....I was at my computer and started to sneeze and it was a fit of sneezes maybe 15 or 20.  With in about one hour i had read bad pain in my bladder. Also a feeling like you are busting for a pee. I took the dog for a walk thought i would walk it off. The bladder pain slowly went but then i had pain from my right testicle to umm around the top of groin say up near your lower waist line...My Testicle feels like someone has hit it with a spoon. and on the right side of penis on pubic bone its tender very tender. I took pain killers for around a week and it all seemed to go away. Pain free for a week also. Then woke up a week later thats now 2 weeks with pain from my right testicle the same pain also the right side pubic bone pain. Pain up my groin and going around my back to my kidney that was kicking like a bugger. It was on a Saturday so could not see a doctor. Could not really move as pain was so bad. Only way i could get the bugger to ease up was to lay on my back with my right leg hanging out of the bed. That pain stayed there until around Sunday Night. By Monday no kidney pain but my testicle still feels like its been hit with a spoon. So walking a bit funny. I got in to see the Doctor but they said sorry you will have to see a Nurse Practitioner. I told her everything and she also took a pee sample and dipped it and then said no no Urinary tract Infection. I think you have Kidney Stones. She said are you in pain now and i said no my kidneys are all good at the minute but pubic bone is still tender. Its a gland on the right side of the penis. One of many i think from what she said. With that she just said Drink lots and lots of water and lets see if it passes....Like many people the first thing i did was google and look at stone removal and have pretty much s***t the life out of my self with worry....

Thank you in advance....PS sorry about grammar and spelling...School was not my thing

    Sounds like stone(s) to me. You really need a CT scan to determine for sure though. I would sometimes go a week with no pain at all. Groin pain is common with stones. The sneezing fit may have jostled the stone loose. Did the nurse give you any pain medication?

      No lol not a thing... I am just on the shop bought Paracetamol. I can only think its the Alcohol i drank for many years. 30 years drinker and never really eat proper that has caused them. Mainly Lager drinker. The only thing i have changed is for weeks now before the attack i started to eat salads 2 times a day but as i dont drink water or tea and so on in the day i was drinking around a large bottle family size Lucozade a day. I am now pumping a lot of water into me. Well for me its a lot around 4 litres a day. And i am sure i can now and then feel that stone move a bit. Every now and then i get a twinge a slight jab as if its trying to move down the pipe....

      I was told by my doctor that low beer consumption actually helps prevent stones, but large amounts increases the risk because beer has minerals that accumulate over time as sediment. Could be that the extra water and better diet now is cleaning out your system. I don't want to sound like a broken record, but you really should have that CT scan to confirm the presence of stone(s). But also to see the size of the stone. You don't want to wait until the pain is so bad, only to find out that the stone is too large to pass on its own. I think you need more information at this point. Also, get some pain meds! biggrin

      Yes m8 sounds like a good idea. Pain is kicking in a bit tonight...Its manageable at the minute. Kidney kicking a touch and the odd twinge around top of Hip Joint. But yes i agree if you no what size it is you will no if you can p**s it out unless its very stuck.; My mother told me today that her brother had one and peed it out also her sister had one so its in the family lol. I think there is a very good chance mine is lager related.

    I am a whiskey man myself. I have cut back since my last stone. Not any better than beer I'm sure. Maybe worse! Keep us posted. The only thing that helped my pain was sitting on my knees in the shower and letting the hot water hit my back. I alternated that with a heating pad. Hope you get some answers soon!

      Arrr got a call today from the local nurse i had to see....On Monday she did a dip test of my pee and said no does not look like a UTI. Then she said i will send it to the lab anyway...Fk good Job she did...She said today your test came back and you have a UTI. I have left out Nitrofurantoin antibiotics....I had the same UTI around 12 months ago. That was Ecoli....That was a bad one as my Prostate blood readings were so high it was in cancer range.. But thank got it was because of UTI. These Nitrofurantoin make me feel like shat. So it sounds like a blockage some were kidney or in the pipes lol....When i go back i am going to see about a CT scan as thinking about it. If the last UTI was from a blockage its had 12 months to try and pass lol

      Dealing with incompetent health workers just makes it all worse! Yes 12 months is too long if its the same stone causing this now! It's interesting to read all the experiences from across the pond, as I am in the USA. I am noticing differences in the health practices. Well, take care. keep in touch.

    Female perspective. I've had a few bouts in the past year. UTI is not uncommon while dealing with kidney stones, so you still may be dealing with it. Lager more then likely kept you from having them, the recent change to healthy eating is the liklier culprit. You added salads...any spinach in those salads? Spinach has the most oxylate of any food and most kidney stones are calcium oxylate. My husband has a co-worker who got on a health kick, eating spinach salads regularly. Wasn't long before he was taken to the ER in an ambulance, passing his first stone caused by dietary changes. It's ironic that most of the calcium oxylate stones can come from eating healthy foods (spinach, leafy greens, broccoli, nuts/seeds, tea, chocolate and soy products). I love spinach, but have completely given it up since my last ER visit in May. Drink lemon juice and lots of water...best method for prevention and passing stones.
