How complicated is kidney stone removal surgery?

It depends

Kidney_stone
To make a generalization, it depends primarily on the size of the stone as well as the location. Anatomic factors may also play a role. Most stone procedures are not complicated; some may be if stones are large and/or multiple, infection is present, etc.

How successfully can doctors do a kidney stone removal surgery?

Usually

Most stone procedures are fairly straightforward, but some can be very complex. If yours seems like a complicated case, do not hesitate to get a second opinion if possible.

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

Two ways

Kidney
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.

Is non-surgical kidney stone removal a lot cheaper than doing the surgery?

It depends

Kidney
It depends on what you mean. If you truly mean NO SURGERY then it is almost by definition cheaper. However, the hidden costs of observation are in the amount of lost productivity due to being unable to work or go to school, the costs of ER visits to treat pain, nausea, and vomiting, and the costs of the medications which help facilitate passage and control pain.

Kidney stone removal surgery. The cxr after the surgery showed pleural effusion. how does someone get this after surgery on their kidney?

What procedure

Pleural_effusion
How much effusion? What fluids given by anesthesia? Any central lines? Concern would be bleeding in chest, unless a lot of abdominal fluid used and the ascites extended to just one chest?
