So here the story. I went to the ER Tuesdays morning at about 230 with severe back pain. I had kidney stone about ten years ago also. So anyway they did and X-ray and said I had a 7.5mm kidney stone. So owner to the urologist Thursday. She sent me for a X-ray and ultra sound. Saying that I would probably have to have the surgery again like last time. So the results came back and the X-ray showed it hasn't moved at all its still sitting in my kidney. So she isn't convinced its a stone anymore. But what's throwing her is I have all the symptoms of one. So she sent me for a ct and I go back Monday to find out what we do. Now I have back pain but not too bad it's more like just an ache now. She is going to talk to the surgoen on monday to see ehat he thinks (shes a pa). Had anyone had the same thing happen? Has anyone had a kidney stone that didn't move at all before? Any input would help. Just stressing out now about what it could be. I am thinking the worse now because my dad had a tumor on his kidney before and kidney issues run in my family.


Update
So it's def a kidney stone and have to have surgery on Thursday.

I had a stone the size of a d battery in my kidney for probably a good 3 years before I could get any doctor to do a ct.

What do you do for the pain? Stones run in my family and now that I had two I have a greater chance of getting more :-(

I had kidney stones while I was pregnant with my youngest. It hurt like heck. It was 8mm, but it eventually came out on its own. It was a very long month...

The day they did the ct, teu said I had a few in my left also. Well I went to the kidney doctor and he did x rays and a ct and come to find out my left kidney was the size of a dried up raisin!! It was dead!! Took these doctors here 29 years to figure that out:(

I have had the same kidney stones since 2007.  They have not passed and no one will remove them since I have kidney disease, and messing with my kidneys will make it worse.  I just take pain meds when the pain gets bad.

They tried crush it. But that didn't help, I passed a few crumbs. My stint blokes my kidney and had to be replaced. So I ended up having surgery. Where they cut my kidney open and went in and got it. Ugh talk about pain. But at least I didn't have to pass it. Because when I passed the crumbs, I had infection so bad it was awful. If I ever get another I have to go straight to the doctor for surgery. Because of having one kidney.
