    Kidney stone surgery

    I was so afraid before my surgery (two large kidney stones, 13.9 mm each). Here is what to expect that might ease your mind- your prepped before surgery with an IV and the anesthesiologist gives you something to relax (I don’t remember anything until I woke up in recovery). Yes, a breathing tube is inserted during surgery but you won’t know it / you are on your stomach so that the surgeon can enter the kidney from your back so you may have some bruising from being moved during surgery / a second....

    So I'm a 22 yr old female. I'm scheduled to have an kidney biopsy Wednesday the 13th and they told me I am supposed to watch the bleeding in my urine afterwards and that it should go away within a day but I think my period will come on either Tuesday night or that morning, how do I know if the bleeding is from my kidneys or my period? Can I still have the biopsy done if it comes on beforehand?

    A few weeks ago I had an ultrasound (routine by orders of my kidney doctor). of my transplanted kidney that I have had for 11 years now. The report came back and it stated that it maybe helpful if I had a ct scan of my pelvis. My question is that what is the purpose of taking a ct scan of pelvis after ultrasound has been performed on kidney? What could it be that they are possible ruling out or looking for?
