So I had lithotripsy on Monday at 2:30pm and it went really well. I had one 8mm stone that they broke up and I woke up without much pain, came home in a good mood and couldnt help but be relieved at how much easier it was than my January ureteroscopy. My first time using the bathroom after surgery there was a LOT of red blood. But everytime after that has been really good. There has been some orangeish/brown tint to my urine since, but very minimal, so that seems to be going good as well. However, my pain had gone from about a 3 monday afternoon to about a 6-7 here wednesday morning. There is more blood in my urine this morning than any other time so far, but i also slept 6 hours straight and didnt wake up 10 times like the first night. Does it seem normal that my pain is increasing? The dr had to use the highest setting on the lithotripter to get the stone to break and said my urine would be a bit more gravely than sandy, and it has been. But ive peed a considerable amount of stone remnant out a couple of decent size chunks. Im hoping nothing has gotten stuck in transit. Sorry I know Im rambling. Any similar expierences or advice are appreciated!
