Excessive Bleeding After Kidney Stent?

Is it normal for blood in urine to increase 48hrs AFTER kidney stent is implanted?
I am NOT vomiting, do not have nausea, and am not running a fever.
Still having excessive amount of pain and excessive amounts of blood in my urine(not clotting).
Thanks

Hi,
"It is common to see blood in the urine for 1 to 2 days after nephrostomy. This will clear up with regular irrigation (6 to 8 hour intervals) of the nephrostomy tube with sterile saline"
"Call your physician immediately if you have pain in your side, bleeding beyond 2 days of the catheter insertion, if your catheter leaks, falls out, breaks or becomes dislodged, if the skin around the catheter is red, swollen or has purulent discharge. Report any temperatures over 101 degrees (38.3 degrees Celsius)"

You should contact your surgeon at the earliest to identify the cause of the excessive bleeding and pain.

Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.

Clarification of above post. I rec'd a INTERNAL kidney stent, because of rather large kidney stones blocking my bladder and causing pain/bleeding. This is NOT a EXTERNAL kidney stent. Dr Smitha Mathews response appears that she is replying with regard to a external stent(catheter)???
Sorry for the miscommunication on my question.
Does this make a difference with regard to her response? Again, excessive bleeding and pain since kidney stent implanted 4 days ago. I do NOT have fever, nausea, or vomiting.
Is the bleeding and pain normal after 4 days?
Thanks again

Hi,
Ureteral stents may be placed internally or externally.

Bleeding persisting for over 48 hours after the procedure could be indicative of complications.

"Complications associated with ureteral stenting include:

    * bleeding (usually minor and easily treated, but occasionally requiring transfusion)"
   " * coiling of the stent within the ureter (may cause lower abdominal pain or flank pain on urination, urinary frequency, or blood in the urine)
    * introduction or worsening of infection
    * penetration of adjacent organs (e.g., bowel, gallbladder, or lungs)"

www.answers.com/topic/ureteral-stenting+ureteral+stent+complications&hl

Identification of whether the stent is in the right position would be needed to rule out whether the bleeding is arising from damage to surrounding structures due to dislodgement of the stent.

How is your urine flow following the procedure?

Since blood in urine beyond 48 hours following the procedure is not normal, it would be best to contact your doctor to evaluate the cause of the problem.

I had a massive kidney stone that block my kidney and ureter. I had lithotripsy and a stint. But, I am bleeding, alot, and the pain is really bad. It has been 3 days post op. The hospital I was in was very nonchalant about the whole thing. I was sent home with no Rxs at all. Help! Stone was over 9mm

I have kidney stent done three days ago and I am still bleeding. The pain is almost gone. But the bleeding has not stopped yet. What do I do? I am bothered and feel weak.
