    Kidney stone urethral pain

    I just passed a stone, I caught it in a strainer and it was very tiny but spiky. A week before I passed this stone I thought I had a UTI, I've been on antibiotics but they haven't helped and my Culture came back negative. Since I passed the stone I am still having a constant dull burning sensation 24/7 and pressure in my bladder that makes me feel as though I have to urinate. Has anyone experienced this? Does anyone know what it is?

    Can hypoglycemia result after kidney removal?

He will be talking to his doctor about this, but I wondered if anyone in this forum had any experience with this situation. He takes medicines and insulin for his diabetes, and has always been able to keep his blood sugar regulated until now.
  • Help

    I went to the ER on Sunday with UTI symptoms and sharp pains in my kidney area. They ONLY did a urine culture and vaginal swabs. Yesterday evening late I am sure I passed a stone but about an hour later I started having severe pain even worse than when I was pregnant and had a 7mm stone stuck. I previously had Uric Acid stones. What are the chances that I have another stone too large to pass and should I go to a different ER since they refused to do any blood work or a CT scan. Also I don't have....
