Kidney Stones?

Okay, I’ll start from the beginning. I am 15… and when I was born I would always have UTIs and Kidney infections… they did surgery when I was like 6 or 7. Supposedly it was taken care of. About a week and a half ago, when I would use the bathroom it would hurt to pee. Like a UTI. And then a couple days later my sides hurt around to my back in the kidney area. They’ve continued to hurt. I went to the doctor today and they did a UA and they found like… blood. And so they said if the pain continues then, they are going to check for kidney stones.

SO! I’ve been reading about it and the treatment and everything and in a lot of places it says that the pain is severe, probably the most painful thing next to childbirth.

Do you think I have Kidney Stones?

Is there anyway to pass it without severe pain?

And whoever answers this… Please be really experienced or a doctor.

    Blood in your urine can come from a bad urinary tract infection or a kidney stone. Sometimes, it is just a nagging pain in your flank area down to your groin area or it can be severe and is associated with vomiting, restlessness and sweating. The pain can be anywhere inbetween. With increased water intake, often the stones can be passed into your bladder. If you become pain free by doing this, the stone has probably been passed. If the pain becomes more and more severe with the above symptoms, you will have to go to the ER for IV fluids and pain control. If it is a really large stone that is stuck, a cystoscopy can be performed to go up into the ureter and pluck the stone out. Even when the stone is gone, you have a day or two or general "aching" in the area where the stone was before you feel completely well again.
