When i was hospitalized for my UC on November 8th, I discovered that I have 2 Kidney stones in my left kidney one is 5mm and the other is 7mm (which is pretty big) and 1 in my right kidney which was 2mm. None of them were ready to be passed so there was nothing to worry about. On December 27 I woke up with excruciating pain in my right kidney and at 6pm I went to the ER thinking i had a UT infection. The doctor soon informed me that my pain was being caused by a 6mm stone that created a blockage in my kidney. i was rushed via ambulance to Choc Children's Hospital for treatment and pain meds. In a little over a month one of my stones grew 4mm!!!! Im really freaking out because I keep forming more and my doctors are running tests but they wont be back for a couple weeks. Does anyone else have kidney stone problems and if so how do you deal? I'm only 15!!!!
plenty of water, reduce my sodium intake and red meat. I currently have a 5mm and a 6mm stone and am seeing the doc next week
