I had surgery last week, they put in a stent, I have a kidney stone 7mm in size. I am schedualed for surgery next week to have it removed. I would like to know is is safe to soak in the bathtub with a stent ? I have been showering, but a nice hot soak would do my body good...
Heya, hope the op goes well for you, and you feel better soon. During the course of last year i had x3 stents in total and i was having baths with no probs or effects, i was also never told not to have a bath. Have a good soak, and enjoy
