my husband is 45, he has a 1.3cm stone in his right kidney that they have not been able to get out and the drs here suggested he live with it.... that has not been his problem as of late, he has begun to get a pain in his left side and hurts down his back.... we went to the er because he has been sweating and his heart rate has been having episodes of racing, and the pain that he says feels different than his stone pain he has been living with for the past 8years.... he showed slightly low levels of cloride, slightly high creatine, and slightly high alkaline phos, on his metabolic panel....showed a slight signs of blood in his urine, MCV was low, MCH low, RDW high, and mono high on cbc... onthe ct scan they noted his liver MAY have cysts but not sure, liver is enlarged, and fatty... he has a prostisis in his hip that made it almost impossible for them to see his bladder and ureters, but noted the kedney stone in his right, and i quote "an obvious calcification is seen" as to where that specificly was is not said but based on the fact it was not said along with his stone in the same sentance i assume it was elsewhere in the ureters or kidney....the er said very little about most of the abnormalities of his results and told us to go home have him use a laxative for his constipation, and see the urologist... wich we hope to go see next week if schedualing allows for it, otherwise he will have to wait for febuary.... we are very concerned any help is apreciated

  • Just a question, but did you say he has a prosthetic hip (hip replacement)?
