Are Bladder Stones Dangerous?
Noon Stories from my mother when she urinated, she took out a small stone. Previously, my mother felt pain when she wanted to urinate, like any-one when people usually call it. After urinating and the stone comes out the pain disappears. Is that bladder stone? And is it dangerous? Information please, thank you.
Hello Siska, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The symptoms that you mentioned experienced by your mother are indeed symptoms of urinary tract stones (precisely the stones in the bladder). Bladder stones are generally harmless, but can be very annoying if not treated thoroughly. The presence of bladder stones can cause symptoms such as:
lower abdominal pain
pain when urinating
intermittent urination or difficulty starting urination
there is blood in the urine
Sometimes the stones in the bladder also do not cause any symptoms despite their large size. If not properly managed, stones in the urinary tract can also cause long-term urinary problems and bladder dysfunction, clog the urinary tract so that the urine cannot come out (can later cause kidney damage), and increase the risk of urinary tract infections.
You should immediately bring your mother to a urologist so that further evaluation and management can be done. Stones that have come out do not necessarily indicate that there are no more stones in your mother's bladder. Some things your mother can do right now include drinking enough amounts every day (2-3 liters a day), doing physical activity and regular exercise, and avoiding holding back urine.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
