I hve a history of kidney stones. I have not had any

Customer Question

I hve a history of kidney stones. I have not had any symptoms for about four years. Over the past 3 or 4 weeks, on & off I have had the urge to urinate frequently and am only able to pass minimal urine at times. Sometimes I have to bear down to pass urine. At times I have pain that feels like a UTI or bladder infection. I cannot get an appointment with a urologist until April 17. My family & I leave for vacation on Saturday March 26.

This is Dr. David

you should go to a local ER or urgent care center to get your urine checked with a urinalysis

if you have signs of a bladder infection, the doctor can give you a course of antibiotics before your trip

you don't necessarily need to see a urologist at this point

I would get your urine checked before your trip.

do you have an ER or urgent care center
