Customer Question
Just under a week...

Just under a week ago, I was in the ER diognosed with kidney stones... since then nothing has happened as far as them passing, I have an appt with a urologist this coming week... my question is , I live alone and what should I do if my stone starts to pass and I’m in pain( too much to bear) I’ve read so many horror stories about these and I’m just so nervous. What do I do if I feel I’m gonna pass out from the pain?

Doctor's Assistant: When did the pain begin? Have they used any medication for it?

It started early am this past Monday, I’m on antibiotics for an infection and tamsolosin for 10 days. Since Monday I haven’t had any more pain but I just fear it’s coming, im hoping I get to the urologist before anything happens

Doctor's Assistant: Have they used anything besides Tamsulosin for this?

No nothing else besides the antibiotics. I was given Norco as well if needed

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

No, nothing else at all

If there is pain during passage of stone; you can take Norco. You can also take Motrin which relaxes ureter and help in facilitating the passage.

Pain sometimes can be severe but analgesics definitely help.

There are no other issues involved, so there is no worry.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Last question... if I start having pain, do I need to go back to the ER? Sometimes I’m home alone and I have heard many horror stories about the pain they cause and some people say they have almost passed out from the pain. I’m just nervous about it.
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 4 months ago

The stories on the forum can be exaggerated. Usually when pain comes, it is mild to moderate. Rarely it can be severe or excruciating; than it is amenable to the analgesics. So keep pain releivers in home. Also pain is never sudden. It builds up slowly.

I can assure, it is exceedingly rare to cause passing off.

Wishing you a speedy recovery and resolution.

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.
