pain radiating from right side of back to groin area
An_253389 posted:
Wife is having symptoms which include the following: pain in back that radiates from right kidney area to groin, vomiting, low grade fever with cold sweats. Use of percocet has had little effect on pain.

After passing a kidney stone 3 weeks ago, her Dr. today said that it is unlikely to be another stone in so short a time and that a scan showed no other stones in the right kidney.

Any clues?

If these symptoms have continued the wisest thing to do would be to take your wife back to the emergency room. If you can get hold of her doctor quickly you can try talking to him/her first, but it sounds to me like your wife needs immediate medical attention.

I pray she can get relief soon.
