Causes And Treatment For Kidney Stone Sufferers?
Hello. Bgini. A few months ago I once said ultrasound that there was a kidney stone but the doctor said there was a need for surgery because the stone was small. Cmn given batugin syrup. But until now the back of the abdomen is still normal backward pain and urination. How’s that? Because the last time the doctor was asked to give medicine again was to drink water.
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Kidney stones, as the name suggests, are conditions when a stone-like lump forms in the kidney or urinary tract. This clot forming material can be in the form of calcium, gout, struvit substances and cystine. Among the factors that increase the risk of this stone formation are:
Dehydration or lack of fluid consumption Obesity or being overweight Have a history of previous kidney stone disease Consuming foods high in protein, salt and or sugar Suffering from hyperparathyroidism or urinary tract infections
The presence of stones in the channel causes symptoms such as pain in the abdomen, waist and lower back, increased frequency of urination, pain when urinating, nausea and vomiting, feeling restless, fever, and urinating in small amounts.
Regarding your question, the handling of kidney stones is indeed varied depending on the number, size, and location of the stone. Basically, as long as it doesn't need surgery, it won't be operated. In small stones, it is usually only advisable to drink a lot and be given stone solvents in the hope that the stone will dissolve and come out on its own when urinating. Meanwhile, if in your case there is still pain and other complaints, we suggest you should check your condition to the doctor again. It is important to see if there has been a formation of larger kidney stones, or there are other medical conditions that you are experiencing such as urinary tract infections.
What we need to emphasize is that here you have the right to know everything about your condition with your doctor. If your doctor does not say anything, you have the right to ask because there is indeed no one else who can tell you completely about your illness other than the doctor who examined you. Ask how the results of the examination of your condition now compare to the first time, what you should do next, and if it does not improve, is needed treatment from other doctors. You have the right and indeed have to ask all of it so that you are not confused and clear about the next target.
For now, keep drinking more water, do not hold urination, put a warm patch on the painful part or compress with a warm compress, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
