Kidney Stents Recovery Time
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
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
If I had a kidney stone on my kidney stent and it was removed would they take the stones out at the same time?
Usually, yes, but...: At times the final decision is made during the procedures depending on residual stone load, the complexity of original procedures, professional proficiency, etc. So. ask your urologist for individual pertinent consideration & possible decision.

I've had stent in my kidney for kidney stones for ten days now the pain is still same each time I go to toilet is that normal?
I m 60 yr old female. Was diagnosed RETROPERITONEAL FIBROSIS 17 years ago and underwent rt. Ureterolysis... by the time of diagnosis, my left kidney was completely fibrosed... Over the years, I had taken prednisolones, d/j stent placements for 10 year
Is there a question.: Hope all is well with you. I understand the disease although I didn't see a question in your history.
Rarely.: A ureteral stent is a pliable tube inserted to keep the ureter, & therefore the passage from the kidney to the bladder, open. They possess a curl on each end to keep it in place. They can migrate, and usually this occurs out of the kidney toward the bladder. It is possible for a stent fragment to exit this space, if it erodes through the ureter or out of a ureteral incision. These events are rare.
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.
Just "freaking out" because string of stent is missing...pretty positive stent is still in, just not sure what to do...could stent backup into kidney?
Here are some. ..: Don't worry about it as long as being comfortable in peeing. Meanwhile, watch the opening of your penis at each peeing so to see if the string flows out with urine, but don't pull it out yet until the time as instructed by your uro-Doc. If unsure, see Doc on or after the date of catheter pulling. If unable to see it at peeing, take a KUB (abdominal x-ray to cover kidneys, ureters, & bladder to seeSee 2 more doctor answers
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!
Until the stones: Are gone, and any narrowing or blockage of urine is gone. It is difficult to say because everyone responds differently to stones and the degree of blockage and narrowing will also.
Ureteral: You are referring to a ureteral stent. It is placed through a cystoscope. How do you know this is what you need. If you know you have a stone go to a urologist.See 1 more doctor answer
I had a stent removed yesterday morning and my right kidney still hurts is this a problem I should be concerned about?
Likely normal: It's not uncommon to have ureteral discomfort for a few days after removal of a stent. If you had lithotripsy, there may however be more stones working down the ureter
I am scared because there is a stent from kidney to bladder in my body, does it really pain more than expected when removed?
No not really: Ureteral stents can be uncomfortable. Removing them in the office is usually not painful.
Very briefly.: An indwelling ureteral stent is removed in one of two ways. A quick pull on a little string to pull it out of the urethra, or by using a flexible scope to enter the bladder and pulling out the stent with forceps. Both can cause bladder discomfort and some flank pain as it is quickly removed. Some residual pain can linger for a day or two. Pain can be variable with many feeling no pain.See 1 more doctor answer
