Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
are you having pain in the left flank area on the side of your abdomen?
small kidney stones can cause pain there
your doctors should have checked your urine for blood
and you should have had a kidney ultrasound as well to check for kidney stones
some kidney stones are too small to show up on CT scan of the abdomen.
you should ask for a numbing medication like pyridium to take which turns your urine orange but helps numb up your kidney and ureter and bladder and could help your pain if your pain is coming from a small kidney stone.
make sure you drink lots and lots of water and fluids to help flush out a kidney stone.
I would ask your doctors to do a kidney ultrasound to check for kidney stones.
let me know if you have questions.
