Pain in the kidney area two weeks after stent removal for kidney stone. What should I do?

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.

How do they remove a stent placed after kidney stone removal surgery?

How do they remove a stent placed after kidney stone removal surgery?

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.

Had kidney stone removed week ago. Stent for 3 days. After removal extreme bladder spasms at night. Should I be worried, can it be another stone?

Don't worry (yet): It is very common to have spasms after placement and removal of a ureteral stent. If the pain does not resolve after 2 weeks consider seeing your urologist and maybe even getting another ct scan to look for additional stones.

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

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.)

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 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 kidney

I had a stent put in from kidney stone removal, I got the stent out today and I'm experience stinging in the penis and bloody urine. Is this normal?

Normal: You have just had urethral instrumentation. Some blood and penile (urethral) irritation is normal. Blood-tinged urine is normal but not frank blood. If you have any questions, you should contact the doctor who performed the procedure tomorrow. If symptoms worsen, and you have pure blood coming from your penis, you should go to the emergency department.

22days post ureteroscopic kidney stone removal&stent placement still passing stones not on CT? Scans show nonobstructing stones how can this be?

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.

Sometimes jj ureteral stent helps to break up an obstructing ureteral stone.

How painful is it to have a stent removed from after you have a kidney stone removed?

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..
