Can You Tell Me The Recovery Time For A Kidney Stent Operation
Usually a week: In general your renal arteries 'recover' right away, e.g. If you had renal hypertension due to stenosis it is resolved with the percutaneous revascularization. The recovery is for the groin access: most people stay overnight and restrict (some) activities for 1-2 weeks. A week is usually sufficient. Everyone is different. Follow your doctor's instructions.See 3 more doctor answers

Possibly: Any patient with a kidney that has a stent or a 'foreign body' in place may experience bleeding. The concern is how much? Discuss with your urologist how much bleeding you are having and what might be the causes--which are many.
Depends: Life long (in kidney artery) or usually three months or longer depending on type of stent (in the ureter) and also depends on reason for stent, but is it in kidney artery or ureter as kidney doesn't really need stents unless kidney artery is tightly narrow or unless ureter is blocked due to some condition!
My kidney stent started comimg out on its own. Can that be because of drinking 2 pints of vodka? If not that, why could it be?
I doubt your stent: Is coming out because of the vodka, though in general alcohol intake promotes dehydration and may also promote more frequent urination. Not sure why your stent was placed...? kidney stones. Presume it was due to come out shortly anyway. Would certainly contact your Urologist to see if early removal/intervention is warranted. Good wishes:)
Are they supposed to put you to sleep during a kidney stent? I hear yes but I only got a shot and was awake. It was torture.
Anesthesia varies: For placement of a ureteral stent, a variety of anesthetics can be used. If a kidney stone needs to be treated prior to stent placement then a general anesthetic is typically used. If a stent alone needs to be placed, sedation is often used. In your case, the stent may needed to have been placed emergently/urgently, necessitating less anesthesia. Talk to your urologist about this.

Kidney stent procedure - how long is the average hospital stay for a kidney stent implant? How long do you need to stay out of work?
Varies: If you have not had a lot of complications and the stent procedure is elective, you may not even need to stay in the hospital. It is not uncommon to stay a day though. You can usually work right away, but it depends on whether you develop any pain, which will vary person to person.
I had my kidney stent and stone removed but I am experiencing extreme pain where it was previously. Is this normal? Painkillers not helping

Will I be in pain after ureteral stent removal tomorrow surgery was wednesday. Its removed tmmrw many forums say how painful it is after. Is this true?
Not painful: Most organs in our abdomen (Belly) do not have pain nerve endings so they are not painful to touch! As a result neither the insertion (placement) or removal of a Stent in your ureter should cause any significant amount of pain. The worst that can happen is some slight discomfort. So do not anticipate any problems and wait to worry! . Send me a note after the stent has been removed and let me know.
