i had my ureterscopy on 14 april2009.i had a stone of 15 mm which was really very big,because of it even my urine output was nil before surgery.after surgery i wasok,dr.put the dj stent and told me that stent to be removed after21 days.then on 2 may i had my stent removed without anesthesia,it was little bit painful.but after removal i had a tremendous pain which subsided by taking voveran injection.
How are you? Some amount of pain after stent removal is common, but this subsides after taking pain killers. If pain killers do not relive the pain, the other causes for this could be recurrence of stones, ureteral stricture or scarring etc.
I would suggest that you get a scrotal ultrasound and urine analysis and visit a urologist for further assistance.
Hello. I have a question. My brother is 24 has only one kidney. When he was born they took out his left kidney. Today he has been having very sharp pain in his right side of his back and we went to the emergency room. They made CT scan and blood and urine work. Urine showed no blood but infection. Ct scan showed that he has a 4 mm stone in his urethra. They admitted him to the hospital and stated on 0,45% NACL, gave him antibiotic and flomax. They want to do stent placement in his urethra so the stone doesn't block his urethra and then burn with laser the stone. Please give me advise if this procedure is really necessary, what risks does it have? because he has only one kidney I am very concerned if this stent and laser will not have other effects on it?? Please help me. Thank you.

Hi I have removed my kidney stones by laser & stent last month, but frequently bleeding is occur and waves pain in stomach and back pain. Kindly let me know if u have know the root cause.
I am so glad I found this forum tonight! I just had another kidney stone surgery last Thurs. 10/20, and had the stent out yesterday. (This was my 8th stone and I still have one in my left kidney). I thought I'd feel so much better after getting the stent out as the dang thing was absolutely killing me with no relief with pain meds - dilaudid, percoset or vicodin. I had a stent almost 2 yrs ago and it was bothersome but nothing like this one. The very first one had the string so I pulled it out - finally relief from that as it was horrendous! Anyway, after I had it taken out yesterday, by the time I got home I was in more pain than the stent caused and could not control it or me! The doc sent me back to the ER and they did another CT scan and gave me more dilaudid IV. That helped but didn't take it all away. I feel so nauseated and hardly any appetite - almost flu-like. The pain now feels like a miscarriage - but it is getting better. I just feel so sick. The doc said I had a lot of kidney swelling and other edema and 'debris' inside me -I guess in the ureter. Having these stones and the subsequent stents are madness!! The pain is nearly enough to make you not want to live any longer - that is how excruciating this is. I did find one (and the main) cause of mine and that is Topamax. I have been taking it for about 6 or 7 years for migraine control. Not any longer! The stones started showing up a year or so after I began it. I did the 24 hr urine test and they can tell you what type of stone you have and how to avoid them. Good luck to us all - we need it!
