This is a somewhat gross question, but I have a kidney stone that lead to a kidney infection from the blockage. I've never seen a kidney stone before, I've been straining my urine and so far nothing stone like has been caught. I assume the kidney stone would be hard? I do have quite a bit of white stuff caught in the strainer which appears to be more of a mucus like consistency. This would definitely not be the "stone", right? Sorry if that sounds stupid, I just want to be sure. I'm really hoping I am able to catch the stone so that they can test it and determine the type and cause of it.

If you've never seen one, how would you know. What you are getting is sediment that occurs from irritation. The stones look like little stones. They are smaller then the pain they cause seems to indicate. Some can be as small as a pencil point. They can be gray, black, off white or possibly another color, depending on what they are made of. I don't envy you, been there myself a few times. Drink lots of fluids and force it out.
