Just looking for some general advice and people to chat to in the same situation as myself.
5 weeks ago I was admitted to hospotsl via A and E with severe hydronphroses, and was diagnosed with a large 10mm stone in my right kidney. Stone was lodged in the tube between my right kidney and my bladder stopping the flow of urine.
I was taken to theatre and had a stent inserted but the stone was kept in.
I have had the worse 5 weeks of my life, I've had to move back with my parents to help me care for my child, I've been unable to walk or move without being in agony.
On Sunday I took myself back to A and E as I couldn't cope and have now been told I will have an operation tomorrow to hopefully remove the stone and stent but they may have to keep the stent in. I've been told if the stent stays in it will be removed under local anaesthetic in a few weeks time. Does anyone have any experience of the stent staying in once a stone is removed? Is the pain the same? And how painful is it to have the stent removed?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
