Still some discomfort

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi,  I am new to this site.  I had my lithotripsy 2 weeks ago.  I had a follow up with my urologists office on Thursday, I didn't see him, but his cnp.  She said the xray showed no visual stone left, but now he wants me to have a Fish urine test to make sure that the blood in my urine was from the kidney stone & not cancer. I am scared now.  He said the bladder was normal.   This is my first time with a kidney stone and I am 68 and have been pretty healthy.  Plus I am still having some discomfort on the right side.  Is this normal ?  Has anyone else ever had this urine test ?  Any information really would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

    Sounds like your doctor is covering himself in case the blood is something he ought to have checked before discharging you.

    The blood is probably some residual infection but, if it's something different, it can be treated best if treated soonest so go along and get yourself cleared.

    Let us know what happenns.

      Thank you for your response.   I already took the urine sample in on Friday for the fish test.  It takes 2 weeks for results.  They said it is probably from the kidney stone, praying that is all it is.  confused

    Sorry to hear of these problems.

    Has your doc diagnosed the cause of the blood?

    Was it due to the stent?

      This all started over a month ago.  I was having some uncomfortalbe achy in lower back and flank pain.  Went to my primary dr.  he did a urine test in the office and discovered small amount of blood & some cells that looked abnormal.  He sent me for a ct scan & came back with a 7mm non obstructive kidney stone.  Then was referred to the urologist , who said that I needed a lithotripsy & had me get a xray to see if the stone was visable, which it was so didn't need a stent.  Had the procedure & he checked my bladder said looked good.  Like I said when I did my follow up he wants that Fish urnine test to make sure that the cellls are from the kidney stone & not cancer cells.  It's been only less than a week since they sent the test in ( takes 2 weeks ) I am worried about this test & the results.  I had found this site and thought maybe someone else has had this test.  Thanks for listening.

      I am sorry to hear that you have to go through this.  Is your surgery for a kidney stone?  Sorry if I sound dumb, but this is all new to me.  I will be praying for you.  

      God Bless,  Karen
