I don't understand what it means that my left kidney demonstrates prominent calyces. Does this mean they can form stones? Last week they said in A& E I had blood in my urine and they thought I had passed a stone through my urethra.
I had no UTI at the time but did three days later and more blood my urine. I was put on antibiotics by my GP yet again. I have had terrible pains my right lower back back flank legs and right pelvic (fossa?) for months and ended up in A&E six times, mostly with UTI s and pain. All they do is chuck you out and say go to your gp for pain control.
I'm now waiting for a flexible colposcopy of my urethra. My right kidney ultrasound demonstrates a proximal extrarenal pelvis. I had my gallbladder out via keyhole in 1992, but when they gave me the stones in a jar, they fell apart like sand. They said these sorts of stones are more painful because you can pass small grains through your urethra.
I would like to know could this be the way I'm passing through my urethra as have been in terrible pain for at least eight months ad had been living off tramadol pain killers.
Also I have vaginal tape from a prolapsed vagina in 2006. What I can't understand is why it is attached to the neck of my bladder. It must have moved because this was not the way the surgeon showed me how he was going to perform this operation at another hospital.
I have been saying this may be the problem regarding my UTIs since a gynecologist told me last year they can corrode the tape and they have not been around that long. This method hasn't had enough use to know the long term effects. Had I known this tape might corrode, I would have gone for the normal process of an operation to repair my prolapse. I'm worried and fed up.
