What is the difference between bladder and kidney stones? The definition is the same: “A urinary calculus is a stone in the urinary tract, such as the kidney, urethra or bladder,” according to Medical News Today. Each name indicates the location of the stones. You may not know that you have bladder stones until they grow so large that they cause excruciating pain when you use the restroom. To remedy this problem, the bladder stones need to be surgically removed. Many patients need quality post-surgery care, and that’s where A-1 Home Care comes in. With caregivers who live all over Los Angeles County, you can count on a reliable, professional certified nurse assistant in your local area.
How Bladder Stones Develop
Bladder stones are a symptom of a more serious health problem. When a bladder stops functioning properly, it doesn’t completely empty. The residual urine in the bladder forms crystals that eventually become stones as residues accumulate. When the stones become too large to be excreted through the urinary tract, the person feels excruciating pain. After surgery, a urinary catheter is inserted for a few days until the patient is discharged from the hospital or clinic. When the patient returns home, he will experience mild to moderate pain, which makes it difficult for him to resume menial chores. He may also be heavily medicated with narcotics to control the pain, which prevents him from driving. Post-surgery care covers transportation, meal preparation, companion care, medication monitoring, bathing, grooming and oral hygiene. The caliber of A-1 Home Care’s personal care aides is the finest you will ever find in all of Los Angeles County.
