Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
Left kidney pain for several days with a marked inability to urinate & a significant amount of blood in my urine
From this study (2 months ago):
I just had two kidney stones, one in the ureter smashed with laser and one in the kidney taken care of by lithotripsy. I am wondering if Zonegran could be the cause.
From this study (2 months ago):
Patient had a large kidneystone in (r)kidney for 10 years that was too large to dissolve but it didn't move. Suddenly after checking for reasons for back to back uti,s, 2 more stones have appeared and function is down to 12%. has Lisinopril had anything to do with the kidney dysfunction or the quick formation of other stones because of the low function?
