Customer Question

I was diagnosed with a 4mm kidney stone on 3/13 at the ER, I was prescribed Tamsulosin, oxycodone and Ondansetron and sent home so the stone can pass with a follow up appointment with a Urologist on 3/18
I am not sure if i passed the stone or ever had one, but i do know that I now have severe gas and bloating. The gas pain is an 8 on the scale 1-10. Constant belching and extreme flatulence. If i drink a half a cup of water it is followed by hours of pain, knots and belching. eating makes it even worse so i haven't eaten much in 2 days.
What can i do?

As you have appointment with your Urologist on 3/18 so you should see him.

Bloating and flatulence can be associated with medications,indigestion,Irritable bowel syndrome.

You can take OTC Gas X and metamucil.

A repeat ultrasound/CT scan should be done.

A preventive clinical examination by urologist should be considered to prevent further recurrence of kidney stone.

If required your doctor may either opt for other medications or stop them all.

Even advise medication for your current symptoms.

Hope this helps.
