    I hope this is in the right section

    but anyways i just got home from the Sonogram apt and here is what they told me


    first i had to drink 4 glasses of water and hold my urine for an hour well 30mins before the apt i used the bathroom and forgot i wasn;t suppose to [​IMG]

    so i had to drink another 4 glasses of water and when i got there BOY DID I HAVE TO USE THE BATHROOM!!!!!!!

    so they took me in and did it and after she made me go use the bathroom then come back to take more pics of my bladder she said that my bladder is not fully emptying and that whats left is backing up into my Kidneys

    and that i have small Kidney stones and i might have to get surgery to removed them [​IMG]

    Quote:you don't have to have surgery to remove them necessarily. there is a technique available that uses sound waves or something that breaks them up into small, passable pieces. not nearly as painful.

    i am so glad you are getting the answers! i used to have the same issue. not emptying all the way and then tissue gets infected. who knew? i thought i was empty! [​IMG] double voiding is a great solution to the problem.

    Mark, I'm glad they're aware of your stones and can keep them monitored. I know I have a second stone in my right kidney that is 1mm. Trying to do what I can to keep that sucker from growing! Remember this... if you have calcium oxolate stones (the common ones) then TEA is your enemy and REAL LEMONADE is your friend, next to water of course. Also, drink, drink, drink water and keep yourself well hydrated. Speaking of, I need a glass of water...

    [​IMG] hopefully your stones are tiny and you'll pass them without even knowing it. That would be the best option! [​IMG]

    Oh, I totally feel for you right now. I have had kidney stones since I was young (12-13) I have always and still do have multiple kidney stones. Usually 4 in one, 2 or 3 in the other. Every so often I get a really bad one that will pass....it is TERRIBLE! I have 2 children and gave birth to both and I would much rather do that again than pass a big kidney stone! The smaller ones pass, but I can feel when they are moving around and getting ready for "take off" lol. My whole back will ache on the side that it is in. (kidney area)


    I hope you can pass them without much pain....Hoping for no surgery!! [​IMG]
