Why does it still hurt after urinary stones are broken?


Urinary stones refer to stones in the urinary system. The reasons why urinary system stones still hurt after being broken generally include improper operation during surgery, stone scratches, ureteral spasm, urethritis, stone impaction, etc.

1. Improper operation during surgery

If the doctor does not operate properly during urinary tract stone surgery, it may cause damage to local tissues. Even if the stone is broken up, the local damage has not been restored, so the patient will still feel pain and may be accompanied by slight bleeding.

2. Stone scratches

Since urinary system stones will produce more small stones after being broken, and the edges of small stones are sharp, they can easily scratch the urethral mucosa when urine is discharged, so patients are prone to pain.

3. Ureteral spasm

After urinary system stones are broken up, small stones may be excreted through the ureter with urine. In the process, it is easy to cause irritation to the ureteral smooth muscle, causing ureteral spasm, resulting in pain.

4. Urethritis

If the patient fails to develop good hygiene habits after the urinary system stones are broken, urethritis is induced. As the pathogens continue to multiply in the urethra, it is easy to damage the local mucosa of the urethra. When the urine is discharged, it will cause irritation to the nerves in the mucosa. , easy to cause pain.

5. Stone impaction

If a patient with urinary system stones does not expel the stones in time after breaking up the stones, the remaining stones may become lodged in the ureter, easily inducing ureteral obstruction and causing increased pressure in the ureter, causing pain to the patient.

Patients need to avoid holding urine after surgery, develop good urination habits, and maintain adequate sleep time. It is not advisable to eat spicy foods such as peppers, millet peppers, and ginger, so as not to affect the blood circulation of the surgical site and prolong the recovery time. You can use warm water to wash your vulva every day to keep it clean and dry to reduce the risk of being invaded by external pathogens and reduce the probability of secondary infection. If you suddenly have blood in your urine recently, you should seek medical attention immediately.
