Pain After Stent Removal For Kidney Stones
Ulrology consult: It is probably best for you to consult your urologist. Pain may be from spasm of the ureter, infection, or recurrent of stones (the ones not removed/already in the kidney). Your urologist would be best to address your concern.

I will undergo surgery for kidney stone stent removal tomorrow. Please let me know, if it pains after the removal of this stent.
Ureteral stent: There may be some initial soreness and mild pain after the procedure. Should have some medicine provided from the doctor if needed for a couple of days. Usually pain if any is very mild.See 2 more doctor answers
Two ways: If the stent is left with a long "string" if intended to be short term, this can be grasped and pulled out easily. If there is no visible string, an office procedure to retrieve it with a flexible fiberoptic scope (cystoscopy) is a rapid and relatively painless method to remove the stent.See 1 more doctor answer

Kidney stone removal stent with string placed String was smaller on first day now string out my penis is much longer? Is this normal do I need to worry
Not worrying...: Hi! AlistairK, Seeing variable length of the string attached to stent is normal reflecting the variable penile length between erection or no erection. All what you have to do is just be careful not to incidentally pull it out. More doubt? Call your surgeon for clarifying your concern. (In fact, I have answer similar Q for two times.)

Yes.: Yes, but as always, in moderation.Get a more detailed answer ›

I had a endoscopic kidney stone removal on Monday without getting a stent. I'm basically painfree. How long to wait before having sex or masturbating?
I Must Hand It ToYou: God!! So many guys who write-in questions here are worried about when they can masturbate. Bizarre. Well, anyways, go for it. There's no important connection between your ureters and your precious jewels. One thing however, there is so-called "smooth muscle" (sexy, huh?) in both places that may go off together, so-to-speak, but not to worry, unless another stone has been jettisoned from your kidneySee 1 more doctor answer

22days post ureteroscopic kidney stone removal&stent placement still passing stones not on CT? Scans show nonobstructing stones how can this be?
Possible: It is good to pass the stones- obstructing or non- obstructing is only a matter of size of the stone and diameter of the ureter (which is the tube from kidney to the bladder) small size stones may not be seen on ct. Check with your doctor- if kidney stones is a recurrent issue, may benefit if you see a nephrologist who can do some special tests and advise preventive measures.See 2 more doctor answers
How long after kidney stone removal w/ laser, should it take to pass resididual fragments. Much sharp stinging in penis - stent in- blood in urine?
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.
Relieve obstruction: This is an emergency procedure to relieve pain ; back pressure from an obstructing kidney stone or prior to having stone broken up by eswl (electroshock wave lithotripsy). Sometimes jj ureteral stent helps to break up an obstructing ureteral stone. Stent can also dilate a ureter to accommodate at a later date if ureter is initially too narrow for passage of a ureteroscope.
Discuss w urologist: Stone & stent needs to be removed. Jj stents frequently breakup stones stuck in the ureter, they also relieve obstruction & help to dilate ureter facilitating subsequent passage of a ureteroscope for possible lithotripsy. Stonewill either pass on its own, or require endoscopic lithotripsy via ureteroscope, eswl (shockwave lithotripsy or percutaneous lithotripsy depending upon size of kidney stone.
Some, but tolerable: Post-procedure ureteral stent can be removed by patient or urologist if a thread for self-pulling is attached, or by urologist under local anesthesia through cystoscope if no thread is attached to stent. Attaching a thread or not depends on how long the stenting is needed; if 1-2 weeks or longer, use non-threaded stent so to avoid accidental pull..
