I had a total hysterectomy 2 weeks ago, during the procedure my right ureter was cut. Lucky for me my doctor caught it right away and they were able to get the Uro doc in to fix me up, they put a ureteral stent in and I was having soooo much pain in my right kidney that they said was unfortunately a side effect of the stent and I have to have the stent for 6 weeks. Just this last Thursday they took my catheter out and since Friday I haven't had the pain in my kidney which they said I would have the whole 6 weeks......is there a possibility that when they took the catheter out they dislodged or moved the stent out of the correct place which is why I don't have the horrible kidney pain anymore? I'm not sure if its that or if it's because they put me on a higher antispasmatic med. But it's got me worried that the stent somehow got moved and is not in the correct position anymore......help! Of course it's the weekend too so I can't just call my Uro office to ask. Thanks for any help!!
