    This has been a slightly new diagnosis for me. I’m drinking a lot of water and that has helped flush little stones. I’m trying to go see my nephrologist.

    The problem with kidney stones is that aside from episodes of pain and infections, they can worsen your renal function without you knowing at all. I suggest monthly bloodwork and follow-up with a doctor.

    I was just diagnosed with chronic obstructive pyelonephritis. Mark88 is right. I am 33, didnt know I had a stone causing a blockage. I knew something was off, but my PCP didn't listen. It caused chronic infections and swelling. My right kidney no longer functions and I am preparing for a laparoscopic nephrectomy. Keep an eye on everything. Push for your doctor to evaluate too
