Hi, I've been experiencing pain on my right abdomen for a long time now. A month ago I was able to pass a small kidney stone. My KUB showed two more stones (very small ones) on the left side. But until this time I still have the pain in my right abdomen. The pain I'm feeling is from discomfort to severe pain. I also feel that my right side is very heavy. There is no pain at the back side. I also feel a slight pressure on the lower right side of the belly. My doctor don't see anything in the right side. Is there a posibility that I still have a stone on the right? Or could this also be a liver problem?

Hello and thank you for posting your health query on E health Forum.

Based on the history, it seems that from your prior history of renal stones, this could be a recurrance of renal stones.

Pain that originates due to renal issues (Stones, infection) is episodic ,spasmodic or colicky in nature, originating in the flank and radiating to the lower belly, inner thigh or the testicles. It is associated with other symptoms like nausea, vomiting , etc.

You might consider consulting a Urologist for a physical examination and additional evaluations including a CT scan and this will help to initiate necessary treatment.

I hope you find this information useful.
