Hi I am trying to get some different experiences from others. My husband had a procedure called Lithotripsy & has a stent in place for a few weeks (this was done 10 days ago) - the stone was 8mm. I was just wondering if anybody has ever had intense vomiting with a Kidney Stone attack, or after a stent was in place? He was in alot of pain of course, which actually subsided to almost nil, but the vomiting persisted well over 5 hrs. after an attack! None of the doctors can figure out this symptom because they all say the vomiting comes from being in pain! It is very frustrating because all the doctors tell him to keep very hydrated but he is vomiting every 20 minutes. Anybody else have similar experience? He had an attack yesterday which started with cramps, testicle pain & lower left pain (Kidney) but it was never very bad, this pain only lasted about an hour. Then he has been sick with intense vomiting for 2 days. Could this be another Kidney stone, or fragments from the Lithotripsy procedure? Even with a stent in? Any iformation would be mush appreciated :)
