Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

It is very, very unlikely that the ultrasound would do damage to your kidneys or bladder.

It is not unusual to still have some pressure and shedding at this point.

That being said, it wouldn't hurt to give your doctor a call as she knows your situation best, ***** ***** the stone was etc.

But, I bet in the long run, you will be fine.
Does this make sense to you?
