Customer Question
My poop looks like...

My poop looks like coffee grinds... I know they usually means blood. I’ve had a kidney stone for a few days and saw the urologist yesterday. No results from blood, urine, or CT yet. I’m in some pain, but not much. Should I go to urgent care?

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

Sunday was the first day for the kidney stone. Just Advil

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

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.
