I just got a nephrostomy tube put in yesterday. There is now white flake/string like stuff floating around in the bag (not a lot). Is that normal?
Can I still pass stones down ureter when I have nephrostomy tubs in that kidney? How many days will I have large blood clots and tissue in bag post op
Infection and pain: Nephrostomy tubes are used to allow drainage of urine from the kidney if there is an obstruction preventing urine from draining through the ureters and bladder. The main risks of a nephrostomy tube are bleeding from the procedure, infection and pain where the tube sits. An alternative may be a ureteral stent. The pros & cons should be discussed with your OB and urologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I was intimate with my husband and I have a nephrostomy tube, how can I tell if it has been dislodged?
I have a bi-lateral nephrostomy; since june, 2012. The urine on the right is now like syrup and also is the same when i urinate. Normal?
May not be normal: Nephrostomy tubes often get cloudy or lightly bloody drainage. It may need to be flushed. If still draining urine, they are probably still in the correct place. If you are feeling fine (no fevers, flank pain, etc) then i would recommend against checking a urinalysis - it will certainly be positive since the tubes are connected to the outside world and you will get unnecessary antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
