Hello I a 44 yo male that had a stent (kidney to bladder for kidney stones) a week ago... It burns and itches constantly. And temp is 96.3. Is this no?

String Theory: Those things are very annoying. The less time one's in, the better. Did they tell you how long until they'll get rid of the stone and then take it out? It might be "forgotten"unless you ask. Then ask again. Your symptoms are probably skin irritation. But that's a set-up for an infection, so watch it closely. If on the outside, a little bit of steroid cream might help; on the inside? Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more

Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

Kidney and bladder stent removal painful?

Kidney and bladder stent removal 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. ...Read more

I had a stent put in my left kidney bladder on nov 26 2012 and as of today I have a been passing blood in my urine I m also concerned because I only p?

Stents can cause bld: Your urologist probably mentioned that ureteral stents can routinely cause gross hematuria (i.e. Blood in the urine). Patients are advised to drink fluids liberally to avoid clot formation while the stent is in place. Hopefully the stent will be removed shortly and your symptoms will resolve. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

For the left urethra at the bladder with blockage from kidney stone or scare tissue from past ureteroscopies have a stent or resection as a choise?

For the left urethra at the bladder with blockage from kidney stone or scare tissue from past ureteroscopies have a stent or resection as a choise?

Here are some. ..: How to manage the blockage at the ending part of left ureter by the scar after ureteroscopic stone procedures relies on the degree and length of the scar and the balance between medical necessity and professional possibility. At that level, options of care may range from doing nothing or incision + a period of stent or permanent stent with regular change 2-3 times yearly or surgical correction... ...Read more

Post void incontinence, ultrasound bladder, kidney and prostate normal, after voiding showed bladder empty normal, awaiting uroflowmetry resul, concern?

Post void incontinence, ultrasound bladder, kidney and prostate normal, after voiding showed bladder empty normal, awaiting uroflowmetry resul, concern?

Here are some. ..: For postvoid incontinence, I assumed you have so-called postvoid dribbling after you ripped in the penis into underwaer, which is indeed very annoying. You may try correctly milking the entirely urethra after each voiding by wiping the urethra x 3-4 times from the area behind scrotum toward the end of penis until "dryness" before zipping in the penis. Do this first. Due to 400-letter limit, end. . ...Read more

Uroflo came back at 10 but close to empty. Should I be worried about bladder/prostate cancer? Had kidney stone removed 15 yrs ago. Dr thinks stricture

Uroflow: The uroflow does not provide any information regarding cancer of any kind. It would be very unusual for a 35 year old to have either of those malignancies. The flow rate is dependent upon the volume of urine in your bladder prior to voiding and 10 cc/sec may very well be normal. ...Read more

May Have Infection: You may have an infection in your bladder or maybe some of the stone material is still in bladder. You need to see your doctor and be checked. Meanwhile I recommend you drink 6 oz. Cranberry juice and over one quart of water per day. Good idea to take magnesium citrate or magnesium malate once daily as it helps prevents stones.
Did you get the analysis of the stone constituents results? ...Read more

May be stent: Unfortunately the worst part of stone treatments is often the stent itself. Stents can cause flank pain, bladder pain, frequency/urgency and blood in urine, often simulating a UTI. Sometimes Motrin or Aleve (naproxen) helps. Your urologist may also prescribe an antispasmodic. Talk to your urologist if the pain continues ...Read more

How can a fractured stent migrated outside the kidney?

How can a fractured stent migrated outside the kidney?

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

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. ...Read more

Are you supposed to still have pain after a kidney stone drops into your bladder?

Pain should resolve: You may have pain when the stone leaves the bladder (in the urethra). If the stone is in the bladder but still blocking the ureteral orifice, you will continue to have pain. Finally, the pain from passing a stone can sometimes take a while to resolve after the stone has passed due to inflammation of the ureter. If the pain does not resolve, follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

To be v.sure, cystogram can be done before removing the catheter.
