I saw a doctor (??) today who claimed that ALL kidney stones have 'blood in the urine' that show up microscopically when a quickie urine test is done. I dispute that, but can anyone verify this for me? I have a history of stones, I had a kidney removed because it was so diseased. I was born with a deformation, i.e. three kidneys. The two on the left side were 'siamese' and joined together, but although small and fully functioning with their own ureter tubes, the one half seemed to have developed the stones. And now, the half that is left seems to be doign the same thing. I *remember* the pain and the symptoms VERY well, even though it's been 12 years. However, my gripe is that this doctor is simply a DO, not an MD, and surely not schooled in urology. Can anyone help me with this? I thank you.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
