I have been diagnosed with ureteropelvic junction obstruction. I would love to talk to someone out there that has also had this diagnosis. On Feb. 15 I had ureterscope procedure. It was unsuccessful. The ureter was to narrow. The blockage in the kidney is unknown. I have to wait till March 2 for rescope. I have stent in until then to drain the kidney. Cat scan did not show stone. Can stone's hide?

I am feeling very weak. This came on very slowly. I have had lower abdomen pains/cramps since summer. They appeared since summer about once a month. They recently became more frequent, and intense. The 1st of Feb was worst pain yet. It is also the first time the pain was around to my back.

Any response and help appreciated.
