Patient Question

Hello Doctor


I've been dealing with a painful kidney stone issue lately, particularly on the left side, and it seems to be related to a lower ureteric calculus near the UVJ. Can you provide some insights into what this means and how it's impacting my condition?


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


It's essential to address the presence of calculi or stones in the genitourinary tract promptly, as they can indeed lead to further stone formation if left untreated. Ensuring that you adhere to the medication prescribed by your healthcare provider is crucial for managing this condition effectively. Additionally, increasing your fluid intake is highly recommended as it can help flush out the stones and prevent new ones from forming.
