Undiagnosed kidney issues?

Posted , 2 users are following.


I am a 23 year old female and have been suffering from what seems to be kidney complications. Over a year ago I was taken to the ER for a 5mm stone stuck in my right ureter. It was removed by lithotripsy. Since then I have passed two very small stones. I have had a Ureteral Reimplantation, countless stents placed through my ureter. Recently I was sent for ephrostomy. The radiologist decided I did not need a tube/drain placed in my kidney. I am literally going insane. No one has an answer for me and I have no way of getting relief. If ANYONE has insight on what I am going through, please, please give me your advice.

Thanks in advance.

    Does your abdomen feel "heavy" on one side?

    Do you have pain between the ribs and top of your hip? Any other symptoms that may seem unrelated? Skin-hair-nails- Spine Pain - Allergies - etc...

      I suppose you could say heavy. Definitely a full bloated like feeling. The pain radiates from the bottom of my rib cage around my back to my hip and down in the front to my groin area. It's almost always constant, some moments worse than others. I haven't noticed any other symptoms.

      Any Basic Xray can detect it But Only If You Change Positions to show the difference in movement from laying down to when you stand up and also the bending - standing motions required to empty the bladder is what Really Made Mine Drop Significantly.

      Basically what causes the pain is the Twisting -Pulling -Kink of the Ureter and Veins of the Kidney. It caused my Spine to deform (Scoliosis) because the kidney rests in the Back of your Abdominal Cavity almost against the Spine and the weight pulls on those muscles on your back... throwing everything out of alignment and MAJOR NERVE DAMAGE If Untreated for 7 Years!! 😕 ... Good News Is - You've Found Answers Early and your recovery time will be EASY BREEZY! If Untreated it can take Many Painful Years After Surgery for Damage caused by this Condition to Correct Itself ...
