I just had two surgerys to remove a kidney stone first one I had was on 5/5/08 this was done by them trying to blast it from the outside however this didn't work so I was back in on 5/8/08 and they did the procedure where they go through the ureter and grab the stone with the basket. I don't remember the exact names of the surgery. I had a stent put in with a string so I could pull out on 5/12/08 which was today. My question is after my second surgery I barely had any pain the pain was only occuring when I went to the bathroom because of the stent, my back pain and everything else was gone. Since I took out the stent I have had really bad pain and feel like I gotta go to the bathroom every minute. Is this normal? I really didn't get a chance to talk to my doc about the whole stent process and he is now on vacation. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much.
I just had my 3rd kidney stone in 3 months. I had a stent put in the 2nd time and dr removed it. It did not hurt. The last one was a stent with a string. I took it out a day early and hope that I did not take it out too soon. I have some light cramping - not constant - but just wondering if that is normal after removing stent. It was not like this the last time I had it removed. Is it different when you remove it with a string and when a dr removes it without a string?
