Question: just passed kidney stones...weird feelings..

 kodiak - Sat Aug 21, 2004 5:54 pm

Yesterday morning around 5am i woke up with severe pain in my back, groing area. i went to the hospital, 2 hours later i gave birth to 3 healthy stones.

The problem is that since then i've had the weird feeling that i have to urinate non stop. It feels like after you 'pee', and there's just a little bit left... but there never is. it's a bit better today, but i'm wondering if this is normal, maybe just organs are sensitive due to a rock going thru...could there still be a problem? or is this normal? If it is normal, how long before it usually goes away?

User avatar Dear Kodiak,

Very normal feeling and events. This is known as post-obstruction polyuria. It should get better in the next few days.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
