I was recently told by a urologist in my ER through CT Scan that I had one very large kidney stone blocking my left kidney tube. They placed a stent in so I could urinate. Started taking Cephalexin 500mg every 12 hours. I can urinate but its still dark and tonight I urinated a rather large blood clot. Should I worry or head to my ER. Its got me freaking out.
