I get stones frequently. I have had several lithrotripsies, uteroscopies, and stents. After my last uteroscopy, my urologist told me that I had a 1 cm stone embedded in the meaty part of my kidney. He told me that some patients will have pain and some don't even notice they are there. I thought after my stent was removed, the pain would ease up. It has been four days, and I am still having pain 24/7. My heating pad is my best friend, but I have a three year old and a full-time job so I am unable to use my heating pad very much other than when I go to sleep. Not sure if I can find someone with a similar issue who can give me any tips or tricks. Probably going to get back in touch with my doctor when his office is open again to discuss some sort of pain management plan.
