I had two procedures in February for a 6ml kidney stone. The first was laser which didn't work, the second was lithotripsy which broke it up. I have had severe bladder spasms ever since, and the first doctor couldn't tell me what was wrong. I just went for a second opinion a few weeks ago and had an IVP which shows scarring in my ureter and a narrowing. The urologist says the only way to correct this is to inflate with a balloon. Is this true or will it get better on its own. The bladder spasms have eased up the past week. If I give it more time will it heal better?
