I forgot to mention, After passing the one stone that I was able to catch, I had an ultrasound which showed once again, 4 stones (which means one was produced in those few months). Now a couple times a month I get quite a lot of pain there, and I know it is kidney pain because it often radiates into my abdomen and groin. Doctors don't have any explanation, and I don't have an appointment (my first one) with a urologist until Nov. 20th. Anyone have any insight or experience with this?
I had sort of the same thing happen but no stones I live in maryland
I go to the Mayo Clinic for Hyperoxularia type II, and I have had many stones and surgeries. Yes the stent is necessary and no it was not necessary to tell you. You should have the knowledge to ask what is the aftereffects of the surgeries. I actually have a stent in right now to be frank. I am actually getting it removed soon, because yes the suck, and yes they are very painful. You should definately talk to some of the doctors at the Mayo Clinic if stones are being produced and possibly have an CT scan done to estimate actual stones and growths.... sorry no case there...
I actually had a surgery done where I was in the hospital in critical for 9 days which the surgery only told me of an over-nighter. The doctor never informed me of lung collapse and I had two chest tubes in. THE MOST painful thing I ever when through. Email me if you want to talk. ***@****
actually the doctor should have informed you of all the effects and possibilities of the procedure, this is part of IMFORMED CONSENT! If he does not tell you what is going to happen then there is no informed consent and anything out of your knowledge was done without consent. This is basic medical ethics 101..
If a stent was a possibility, it should have been explained. As soon as your over with this procedure with your doctor, i would get another one, this one sounds like a looser..
