It was dtetmined again that my kidney stones are still in my R kidney.  Lasy yr when I had my old GI he said well the CT u had well I dont believe that part of the report....they have been known to have been wrong b4.  This is my same GI that when I had my PPd results from Dec faxed to me since my job requires 2 neg results (one they planted since they want 1 within the last 6 months) we saw he put on the progress notes that patient still claims to be in a flare....duh I had tests showing I was in a freaking flare. 
 
I had a CTE in jan and asked about that being in the report but I was unsure if that was looked at or reported on.  I had 17 CT at 1 hospital since Feb and 2 at the one I currently work at.  Since I work there as does my mom we both have access to my records..granted they are all in medicalese but in both my CT from June 26th and the one from yesterday there are still 3 stones in the R kidney.  The ones that were in the report from yesterday state they are the same ones as before...how they know that ...not sure...but the largest is only 3mm....therefore I dont think I have any pain assoc with them....granted I am still taking pain meds mainly for this fistula that it even hurts if I have to cough, walk up or down stairs, while driving hitting bumps etc.
 
I would think at that small size they would have passed.  Any thoughts to why they would not have passed?  Since they are not causing me pain and obviously not passing how do I find out what type of stones they are?

You can't find out what type of stones they are until you pass them or they are removed/smashed. No telling why they haven't passed but just be thankful that you don't have that on your plate with everything else you are going through. I spent two years in and out of hospitals with stones that got caught in my ureters. Painful....

that is what I am concerned about is that they will get bigger and potentially get stuck. Is that the only time when kidney pain is evident from stones? They havr not changed size at least since June...I dont have access to reports from the other hospitals like I do to the 1 I work at...I can get the records from my hospital very easily making it easy for me to fax reports to my other docs that thehave not been sent too
