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

I think you need to go to ER for sure for that CAT scan

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.
