I have a unique situation, i was diagnosed via Ultrasound with a 7mm kidney stone .. I had back and lower abdominal pain that got worse and worse over several days, until I could not stand up (the pain was so severe)I did not have a problem urinating and had no blood in my urine...Just severe pain. Anyway after the ultrasound the ER doctor told me that I would need surgery to remove the stone.. it was big but was not blocking my urine flow .. within 36 hours I went to a urologist and he ordered a cat scan ( i will admit I felt a little beter at this time) anyway Cat scan shows no stone .. he says maybe you passed it or maybe it is somehting else. I went to my OB/Gyn and Orthapedic Doctor ..and all is fine. However, a week later I still have a dull ache in my lower abdomen and back.. sometimes sharp pain.. but nothing like the pain I experienced before the CAt scan. what I need to know is.. it is possible to pass a stone and not be aware of it? Also.. could I experience residual pain a week later? The pain has gotten better every day, but I still have a dull ache ..I thought most people that pass stones no longer have the pain. It is so frustrating to have different doctors telling you different things... I feel exhasuted from all of this ..
