    Kidney Stone - pain while in bladder???
    Woodde66 posted:
    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!

    These Drs kill me! how do they know unless they are inside your body feeling the pain with you..Idk....its so hard to hear all this when you are so miserable and they pass you off to another Dr..if the stone is in the bladder it still is bouncing around thebladder and has to still pass out of the bladder ..hello.....!!!!!!!!!!!! Doesnt take a phd or md to figure that 1 out....I'm sorry i come off as sarcastic but the lack of understanding is upsetting
