    Hi Dee, I left the hospital with the stent which was placed when I was under, had the stent for one week, that probably was the worst for me. The operation went better then I ever expected , I had a great surgeon. Good Luck

    it depends how long you are in hospital.

    I had PCNL in December last year in Southmead at Bristol.

    I live 70 miles away and live on my own.

    So because I had a catheter in for 3 days and a stent in for a week they kept me in hospital.

    They took stent out while I was awake.

    I did say "OW" but it was not that bad really and soon over with.
