Urinary Tract

When passing a kidney stone, the urinary tract really gets worked over hard! Once the stone leaves the kidney, it travels slowly and painfully down the ureter, grinding and scraping on its way down to the bladder. Oh the humanity! Does it ever hurt.

Once in the bladder, the party's over. If you monitor your urine output you may even get a glimpse of the precious stone. You'll want to save it for bragging rights, believe me. When you tell them how much pain you were in, they may not be that sympathetic. The evidence does provide some consolation, though your audience still may not appreciate the magnitude of your excruciating ordeal.


You may now experience some residual pain, as your ureter resumes its normal task of providing an exit route for your urine. If you experience a general "malaise" in your lower regions, you may be the victim of a bladder infection.

For a wonderful, quick remedy, go here.

I have experienced lower back pain prior to passing a kidney stone as the stone prepares its way down the ureter. I have also felt the discomfort of the offending stone passing through the urethra!

Once, while bending over to install tile, I felt a sharp pain in my penis. I reached down to feel what was going on and felt something sharp in the tip of my penis. I then got myself a large glass of water to prepare for the purge of this penis pain.

Sure enough, when I went to relieve myself, out came the barbed boulder. Of course, I retrieved it from the toilet for further inspection. (I keep all of my stones now. That is if I can find them.)

This would have helped:


A more serious condition may develop and that is a kidney infection.
