If you have had many infections in your kidneys as well as lithotripsys and now experience daily pain, but have no stones in your kidney, it could be scar tissue. My doctor at UT tech has diagnosed and seen the scar tissue in my left kidney from a cat scan, but is now doing a more in debt study with a renal exam scheduled for the end of august. I experience constant pain in my left kidney and couldnt get any doctor to believe me, until I visited the bigger hospitals in Dallas, where they seem to have more knowledge. The Renal Exam with lasix, studies the function of each kidney to see which kidney is doing more work and the kidney that may not be working as well.
I had a renal test that showed that my left kidney is doing 34% of the work and my right kidney is doing 66% of the work. I think that my kidney has been damaged because of past kidney infections and possibly my lithotripsys.
The mineral metabolism specialist found out that I have high calcium levels in my urine and placed me on Lozol, potassium, and 1000mg of Vitamin D per day. I take the liquid vitamin D sold over the counter.
