I had a lower pole kidney stone lasered 6.5 weeks ago ( the most painful experience of my life )
I have been in and out of hospital 4 times since with infections, bleeding etc ..
Last Monday I was phoned to say there was a cancellation and could I make it to get my stent removed .. I watched the procedure on camera as it went into my bladder and within 5 weeks the entire stent was crusted over...
The urologist tried everything to remove it and break off bits ( remembering I had only had anaesthetic gel in my ureter) no pain meds ..
Long story short he got a bit out my penis but it was firmly lodged in my kidney so he tried pushing it back ... no luck !
I was told to dress with oart of the stent protruding and they took me for xrays and then on to a ward .. a nurse gave me doclofenac suppositiries for pain. 5 minutes later a different urologist said he had looked at the xrays and could he see the stent, so I showed him and he promptly began pulling at the stent until such time as it came out. I had no lube or other medication and was in shock ... his only words afterwards were to drink water and have a seat
I was sent home without anymore info ...
On Friday 4 days later I was battling to urinate and my stream was down to a trickle i was in the most extreme pain and knew the bits in my bladder off the catheter may be causing problems.. I endured horrific pain fir a fee hours and thankfully my diclofenac worked it's miracles yet again for the pain.
About 2.5 hours later while urinating I had the most awful feeling of pressure and gave birth to a 1.5 cm stone .
I am now living in constant fear of that pain and believe my bladder and possibly my kidney to be filled with all these fragments and stones from the stent ... has anybody experienced the stent fragments and what was uour experience please..
Ps: I am seeing a urologist on Thursday for feedback about the laser procedure and stone composition .
I just want reassurance that these fragments are not going to cause long term damage in there .
Apologies for the very long post. I am not looking fir sympathy or to cast blame im really looking to see if anyine has experienced the stent stones and how you coped. thanks for reading
