    Yes x

    Was stented for 6 weeks then stone was blasted and restended afterwards and the pain was there constantly in the kidney area

    I had diclofenic suppositories and kept on top of pain with cocodomal and used a heat pad over the kidney to give some relief.

    Hope that helps

      After the stent was removed did the pain go away I'm suppose to remove the stent myself after wearing it for 3 days and the only pain I'm having is severe pain in my kidney

      No I had pain for around 5 days but it gradually went easier but people said try a heat pad, it drove my pain mad so I took it off. A hot shower did help as I got told the kidney and bladder was going in to spasms after the stent had been taken out. I was given Naproxen and they did help. My stent was in for 2 days and my consultant took it out.

      Don't leave the pain.

    Hi, I had my kidney stone lasered 3 weeks ago, it was broken up inside me and some of it removed. I found the pain to last about 10 days but I did have to have the Dr out to give me pain killers and antibiotics and it did start to help

    I do feel a lot better know and have passed little bits of stones.

    It does get better, this is my 2nd kidney stone operation as I had one 7 years ago also.

    Take care and rest and if need be contact your Doctor.

    Let me know how you go on.

    Yes, I had a similar procedure done about a month ago and was in a lot of pain for at least a few days. I was taking norco for the pain. The stent bothered me every day it was in and I couldn't wait to take it out. I was to take it out after 5 days. I was instructed to remove it myself by pulling the string attached and that was surprisingly pain free and I felt immediate relief after. If you are taking the stent out yourself I recommend doing it in the shower with a full bladder. Hope you feel better soon.

    Hi christy

    In my own experience, i had stents in both kidneys and every time i went to urinate it was agony. It felt as though someone was trying to pull my kidneys and internal organs to the ground.

    I was catheterised on and off for a month and this relieved the pain .

    I personally found the stents to be more painful than the stones.

    Diclophenic was my saviour through my ordeal.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery
