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.

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. ...Read more

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.

Talk to your urologist about this. ...Read more
