I have a huge kidney stone. I am under a consultant at Hereford but no date for having it removed yet.

I keep getting urinary tract infections and having to take anti biotics.

This has been going on for months now and uti's are not going to stop coming back until the stone is removed.

Have been to A & E at Abergavenny quite a few times simply because of the pain and have also recently been to A & E at Hereford.

Really fed up with it anti biotics are givng me diarrhoea so don't really feel like going anywhere.

Not a lot of support from the local surgery.

Any help or advice greatly appreciated.

    I have just been diagnosed with kidney stones too. Also have UTI's. I feel for you. How are they removing your stone? How big is it? Is it in your ureter? Or still in kidney?

      They are removing the stone surgically as it is too big to either pass or blast. Not sure exactly how big it is. I think it is still in the kidney.

      My understanding is they can either get to the stone from the front or the back, depending exactly where it is. This is the next thing to ask the consultant before I have the operation.

      Have an appointment with a doctor tomorrow afternoon at local surgery.

      Take care and keep in touch. Thank you for replying.

    How long have you noticed- having bladder infection for before you've found out you have got kidney stones?
