Kidney Stone - pain while in bladder???

Please help, insight needed! Went into my urologist Monday with kidney stone pain (2nd stone I've had - pain in 5/6 range). They did a CT which confirmed a small stone and that it was resting in the bladder. Urologiist said once it's in the bladder it is considered "passed". I've continued to have pain since Monday in the same 5/6 range so I called the urologist today to determine if this was normal. I was told this was not related to the kidney stone and that I should call my family doctor.

Has anyone else had pain while a stone was in the bladder?

Thank you!

I have also had pain after the stone has reached my bladder or passed entirely, which I have been told is "impossible". my theory is that the ston may have damaged the ureter and is is still spasming as a result. it may also be that you have developed a kidney infection, or have some other issue that is causing the pain. i hope it gets better for you!
