What is urolithiasis?

A condition where kidneys stones form and fall into the ureter (urine tubes connecting the kidneys and bladder). Small stones may pass out by themselves, however larger stones may need to be removed by procedures or surgery.

Symptoms of urolithiasis

  • Stomach pain or tummy ache in a specific place

  • Back pain

  • Low back pain

  • Symptoms started with back pain on one side only

  • Abdominal pain

  • History of urinary stones

  • Nausea or vomiting

Questions your doctor may ask to check for urolithiasis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose urolithiasis

  • Do you have abdominal (stomach) pain in any particular location?

  • Do you have back pain?

  • Do you have pain in the lumbar back?

  • Was pain on one side of your lower back your first symptom?

  • Do you have abdominal pain (stomach ache)?

Treatment for urolithiasis

Treatment depends on the size of stone. A small stone may pass out by itself - patients are asked to drink more water and take painkillers in the meantime. Larger stones may need procedures like shockwave therapy, which breaks down a large stone into smaller pieces that are easily passed out. Finally, surgery may be needed to remove the stone or for a tube to be inserted, bypassing the stone.
