Answer: muscle spasm vs kidney stone

Posted Aug 23 2010 5:51pm
Question: What is the cause of my left flank pain?

Oh yes, time to nurse the nurse. I've been having intermittent left flank pain for over a year now. Plus 2 episodes of rust colored urine (aka, blood in the urine). I don't have a history of ever having stones, but it sure does point in that direction.

My urine was clear of infection (and blood) today. I am spilling some ketones, and the specific gravity is at the highest level -- both indicating dehydration - a constant state I have been post gastric bypass. I never can get enough liquids in each day! I'm awaiting word on my KUB (kidney/ureter/bladder) x-ray done today to see if it's stones.

Having had gastric bypass, I am at higher risk for kidney stones.

Oh joy!
