HI! My name is Z***** *****. I am a 56 year old caucasion male in good phiysical condition. I have been diagonosed with a kidney stone. They saw it on a Cat Scan and X-Ray. I haven't been able to pass it for about a week. Should I be worried?

I have seen my internist and a urologist. I am taking Flomax for the condition. Other drugs I take are : Paxil, Effexor , Propecia, and some vitamins.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not really , no.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
