Important Questions To Ask The Kidney Stone Doctor During Treatment

It is normal for patients to have numerous questions about kidney stones and their treatment. Seeking answers to these questions can help them manage their anxiety about the disease and its treatment and remain calm and collected during the treatment process. During treatment, patients must ask the kidney stone doctor all the questions they may have. Some questions that you may ask the doctor include:

  • What may have caused the stones?
  • How many stones do I have?
  • Which is the best treatment option for me-surgical or non-surgical?
  • How successful are kidney stone treatments?
  • How long will complete recovery take after kidney stone treatment?
  • What lifestyle modifications will I need to make after kidney stone treatment?
  • How can I prevent kidney stones in the future?

Best Treatment For Kidney Stones in India

There are several different types of kidney stone treatment. The type of treatment you'll receive will be based on the type and number of stones you have and your overall health. The treatment options range from medicines to therapy and surgery, and the doctor will run a thorough diagnostic procedure before suggesting what would be the most suitable treatment for you. Described below are the various treatment options for kidney stone removal and how they work:

Kidney stone removal through non-surgical methods

Medicines: The doctors generally begin kidney stone treatment with medication, especially if the stones are small or medium-sized and there are no other complications. Medication prescribed for kidney stone treatment generally consists of alpha-blockers or muscle relaxers and pain-relieving medicines.

Lifestyle Modifications: Making some lifestyle modifications, such as increasing fluid intake, and eating ample dietary calcium, can help get rid of kidney stones and even prevent them from forming.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL): ESWL is a non-invasive procedure that is considered effective for kidney stone removal. In this procedure, shockwaves are used to break the stones into pieces, which further flush out of the system.

Kidney stone removal through surgical methods

Ureteroscopic Lithotripsy (URSL): This surgery is generally recommended to extract stones that are small to medium in size. In this procedure, the stone is located with the help of a thin, long fiber-optic scope called a ureteroscope, which is inserted into the ureteral passage through the urethra. At the same time, the doctor uses an x-ray to determine the exact location of the stones. Once located, the stones are extracted and collected in a stone basket, which is then pulled out of the system. If the stones are too big to be extracted, the doctor may use a laser to break them into fragments.

PCNL (Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy): If the kidney stones are too large or too dense, a PCNL procedure may be suggested. In this method, the doctor makes an incision in the lower back, also known as the ‘flank area', and inserts a nephroscope with x-ray guidance to locate the stone. After locating the stone and getting access, the doctor removes them using forceps. If the stones are too large, a laser may be used to break them into smaller pieces, which are then removed.

RIRS (Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery): RIRS is considered the most effective treatment if the doctor suspects complex kidney stones. It is a minimally-invasive method that involves using the urethra as the pathway to reach the kidneys and using an optic endoscope to locate the stones, and then using a laser to reduce the stones to dust. It is used in case of large kidney stones for both adults and kids.

FAQs

Is kidney stone treatment always necessary?

It depends. Kidney stones generally flush out of the system on their own and do not require treatment. Therefore, treatment isn't always necessary. However, if the condition is complex or is causing complications, treatment may be necessary.

Can kidney stones recur after treatment?

Yes. Treatment can help extract existing kidney stones and relieve their symptoms, but it may not be effective in preventing the condition from recurring. You can still get kidney stones in the future. However, the doctor may suggest some lifestyle modifications to reduce the chances of recurrence.

How effective is kidney stone treatment?

Most kidney stone treatments are quite effective in relieving the condition and reducing its symptoms. However, the efficacy of a procedure depends upon several factors, including how severe the condition is, underlying health conditions, post-treatment care, and so on.
