I am writing this in hopes I can get some kind of resolution. For over a year now I have been fighting off kidney stones in which I have had to have 4 ureteroscopies to remove rather large stones. After having 10 CT scans over the last 2 months it only show 3, 1/2 mm stones in my right kidney. I have been having recurrent UTI's and Hematuria in my urine constantly. And oh by the way they also Diagnosed me with Chronic Prostatitis. With all that aside I am still in constant pain in my Right Flank that radiates from my back into my groin into my testicles. I have been to three different Urologists and also I have had to make trips to the emergency room at least once a week or more. I keep getting the same thing they tell me they cant see anything wrong and just keep feeding me antibiotics and a few pain killers. I am so very sick of hurting and no one being able to tell me whats wrong. I never had any of these problems before I came back from the deserts of IRAQ. Can anyone help shed light on this situation. I am at my breaking point. Please help a Vet!

Please help a Vet!Have you had a cystoscopy ? basically the run a camera through the hole. of your penis and through the urethra and up into the bladder and have a look around . the way I understand it they give you a shot to numb you down there so you won't feel to much pain. but they could look and see if there are any kinds of stones or some thing else perhaps going on. you may have had this already if not look into it. yes indeed my brother many doctors are lazy. not all mind you there are very good doctors out there. but there are lazy ones who would rather hand you a sack of pills and push you out the door than to mess with you. I have seen this first hand many times with myself and my illness
