Hello. My name is KayC. I live in Seattle. I usually hang out over on the crohn's forum, as I have it.  But now I have a kidney stone. Last Monday I was doubled over in pain, my Dr thought it was my crohn's but I knew it wasn't. He treated me for a UTI for 3 days. I have a really high pain tolerence and I knew it was a stone. I had a CT scan and showed a 6.5mm stone stuck in my lower ureter. I was given RX'S of Flomax, Cipro, Percocet, Tramadol and phenergan. The urologist told me he did not think I could pass it on my own. He said if I havent passed it in 2 weeks he was going to take it out. What do you think? Any tips on how to pass it. He did tell me when it starts moving again, it was going to bring me down. Am I crazy?
Thanks for listening, KayC

Wow 6.5!!!  I really don't think you will pass this and if you do you will more than likely pass out from pain.smhair
 
BTW welcome to the kidney forums.
 
I had one removed it was 5.3 cm it wouldn't pass.
 
Drink ALOT.  I can tell you my mother had the best solution but I'm don't approve of the method but it usually worked for me.  1/2 a beer it causes you to pee alot!
 
All the advice I can give you is drink plenty of fluids take your medications.  If the pain gets to out of control go to the emergency room and let them call your doc to have it removed earlier than 2 weeks.
 
I wish you well

Kayc-
Not sure if that one will pass very easily. I had a 4mm stuck and they said my duct is unusually small. They also aid anything under 5mm should pass on it's own, but anything larger usually has to be removed. I have had 3 stones or peices of stones since August. Had my 7th scope done Jan. 8th. Hoping this is the last of them. Good luck and don;t wait too long before getting help.

Take care,
Bill

If I am not in any pain right now, is it hurting things to just leave it alone?? I just don't want to damage my kidney's. I am not having any urinary symptoms and voiding just fine. 
Thank you both for you replys. KayC

Kayc-
If you aren't having any issues from it I wouldn't think it would do any damage. They told me the pain starts when things get to backing up or trying to move. I'd ask your doctor about it though.

Take care,
Bill

Kay,
I too have Crohn's and deal with kidney stones but never that large. I am lucky because they don't cause me the tremendous amount of pain like most people. My GI tells me that because I have had a bowel resection I am more likely to get kidney stones. I am wishing you the best and hope you get some answers and relief very soon.

Wow its been a few that youve dealth with this. There is no pain when the stone finds a nice comfy spot to sit in. BUT when it decides to readjust itself thats when the pain comes back. If you have no pain usually damage doesn't occur for their is no backup. But your ureter can scar with it just being in there so long.

I really hope it passes!!!!
