  • Answer: No. Dialysis is not necessary for kidney stone treatment. In most cases, the doctor may either perform lithotripsy, which is using sound waves to make the stone explode/dissolve, or go up the urethra with a small tube to grab the stones. If this is not an option, the doctor will treat the pain involved with the stones with prescription pain killers. Kidney stones are only a serious health risk if they are causing blockage, and in most cases pain is the only real problem involved with them.
  • Answer: I assume you made a typo, since I doubt your stone is 8 meters in diameter. I was told by my urologist that a stone greater than 5mm cannot pass into the ureter, however a couple of weeks ago, a CAT scan during an emergency room visit for pain revealed a 7 mm stone trapped in my ureter,where the ureter bends just before reaching the bladder. A doctor had prescribed flomax to help me pass the stone because I could not afford a third surgery without insurance. With my 7 mm stone, there is still enough room in my ureter for urine to leak around the stone, so I believe it is possible for you to pass your 8 mm stone.
  • Answer: No. Kidney stone under 4mm are likely to pass without minor surgery. Anything above that would cause severe pain and would likely need a doctor or urologist to remove. There are many different procedures that can be done. I had a 7mm stone and had to have surgery for removal.I beg to differ here...upto 6mm stones are nto to be touched and they are supposed to come out on their own. Drink lots of fluid and avoid foods causing stones.

  • Answer: Ahoy this is and I am a chronic kidney stone former, to date I have had 18 kidney stone surgerys and more to go. It has been my experience with stones and urologist that the NO Stone thing is a typical answer to stone formers from the Doctors. There are so many places that a stone can hide in the kidney and they can be translutent, but you can bet if it is a hidden stone it will appear with time, you can count on it. There are also many other things that can cause a kidney to hurt, all you can do is cover all the bases and keep seeing your Urologist or , different Xrays can find hidden stones sometimes. I feel for you, just keep going and stay strong.

  • Answer: No, of coarse not. You might feel the pain very painful but u wont die just because of that!!-actually, if a very large kidney stone is left untreated, it could potentially be fatal. It is mostly the larger ones you have to worry about because they often do not cause as much pain as the more common, smaller stones. It is always important not to ignore the signs of a kidney stone or other kidney or bladder problem, such as cloudy or bloody urine, painful urination, and/or lower back pain.
