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

What are complications of renal pelvis or ureter cancer?

What are complications of renal pelvis or ureter cancer?

Bleeding: Cancer in these areas usually causes microscopic or visible blood in the urine. It can also cause obstruction to the outflow of urine from the kidney and cause kidney swelling (hydronephrosis). This then can also cause kidney pain in the flank area when the kidney becomes obstructed, similar to the pain from a kidney stone. If left untreated, these tumors tend to grow and metastasize. ...Read more

At 20 week ultrasound, the baby's kidney showed renal pelvis dilation with calyceal dilation at 6 mm for both kidneys. There was no blockage in ureter. Opinions?

At 20 week ultrasound, the baby's kidney showed renal pelvis dilation with calyceal dilation at 6 mm for both kidneys. There was no blockage in ureter. Opinions?

No question here: If you are asking "is there blockage in the ureter?" then the answer is possibly. Significant dilation in early gestation increases this risk. It is important to know that dilation (hydronephrosis) can occur without obstruction as well. If the amniotic fluid is low, see a pediatric urologist for prenatal consultation, particularly if you are having a boy (risk of urethral obstruction is high). ...Read more
