Hi,
I have had constant pain in my lower back and left flank area for 3-4 months now. Most of the time it is a constant dull ache, but sometimes I'll also get twinges of severe pain in this area. I had an abdominal ultrasound which found a stone in my right kidney, but my left kidney was normal. It is also very tender over my left flank area if I push on it. Is it possible for a small stone not to show up on an ultrasound? Could this cause a constant dull ache?
Thanks

Could be, but maybe the left is feeling the pain. I didn't feel any pain, just a burning feeling all the time until they performed Litho two weeks ago. Boy, that was hard. When you feel your flank pain, is it right under the rib cage and down the front or in the back or both?
