    You could be having the same problem im having. The stone has moved from the kidney to the bladder and is now trying to flow out of the urethra. In my case, the stone is too big to fit into the urethra and is slowing my urine flow. Buscopan should hopefully help it move. I wish i had some!

      sorry you haven't got buscopan. urine flow has improved dramatically. will keep you posted. hope you get buscopan. it's a prescription drug of course. my doc also gave me tylex for pain. didn't use them yet as no pain. although I've had lower back pain for a good few days which coincidentally has disappeared today. all a bit of a mystery really. cheers Kevin.

      You can purchase Buscopan from any chemist in packs of 20,any more than that and it has to be a prescription from you Gp.

      I have had alot of stones stuck in the ureters in the past and when taken with other meds Buscopan can help.

    Buscopan is really good stuff.

    I take 8 tablets a day for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

    The kidney stones is not that big and my guess is that you might pass it.

    There is a lot of information on the internet but how much of that you trust is up to you to decide.

    Is your name Tom or Kevin?

    Take care and keep in touch.
