    Had a kidney stone removed need help asap

    I had a kidney stone removed about 2 days ago. It was 5mm they didn’t blast it they removed it whole. Ever since waking up from surgery I have been in some intense pain. Blood in pee, INTENSE pain when urinating. Bloated and pain in abdomen. The meds they gave hydro/ace 5-325mg have not worked at all. So my question is, is there anything at all that can help my pain? Should I use heat or cold to help with pain? I noticed a hot bath is the only thing that work. But I read that heat can open on wounds....

    Need help interpreting EBV viral antibodies results

    I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer August 22, 2017 and after doing research decided to ask for an Epstein Barr Virus test. The primary care physician would only tell me I was swimming in the virus antibodies so I must have had a recent occurance. I am sure I have had it a while and am on a diet to cure it because I believe it is responsible for my cancer. Now I would like someone to tell me exactly what the EBV Vrial (VCA) of

    Dialysis, creatinine levels, and their relation to short-term memory loss

    The last couple of months, I've been having bouts of short-term memory loss; more commonly referred to as "brain farts". I put my cell phone down and forget where it is. I go into my room to do something and I can't remember what it was. I dial a phone number that I've known for years and I end up having to look it up. That kind of thing. I told my social worker who represents 180 dialysis patients about this. I simply mentioned it in passing and she matter-of-factly said that....

    Urination Troubles!?

    Hi. So lately I’ve been having pain when urinating. Whenever I do urinate, extreme pressure is felt on my bladder and it hurts. I have to go pee a lot, but when I go, almost nothing comes out. Lately it’s been worse. While I pee, a sharp pain is felt. And when I wipe, I can see pale pink on the toilet paper. Blood, I’m assuming. Along with that, I see a fleshcoloured, black and red thing, almost like skin on the paper. After I pee, I get occasional sharp pains that go for fifteen minutes after urinating....

    Never need to urinate.

    Hi All. For the last month or so I have almost not at all felt the need to Urinate and when I do it is a very weak stream and doesn't last for very long at all. On average drink about 3 litres of water a day. I haven't noticed any weight gain at all. It's really starting to make me worried. Other symptoms I have been feeling are dry eyes and mouth however they could be completely unrelated. Can anyone give me advice on what it could be or what I should do?

    Brown Urine and Red Tissue substance

    I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum to ask my question since it was the closest thing I could find for my problem. It all started about 2 days ago when I was hauling in a lot of heavy items at work. I was forced to use a lot of my physical strength in order to finish my tasks. Afterwards, I went to the restroom and found out that I had brown urine. I didn't really take heed of the situation at that time. Next day, I had to do the same heavy tasks and that's when I started to....

    UTI trouble

    Hello, I'm a 20 year old female with what is seemingly reoccurring UTI problems. More like my UTI won't go away. I've been to three doctors and each time I tested positive for a UTI.

I've taken an at home test and I'll test positive for WBC but not nitrite. I seem to have this problem the most when I hold in my pee for less....
