a bit of a background, I am a 28 Yo male, fit with good diet and drink 3-4 L of water a day.
I have been diagnosed a year ago with a 5mm stone in the bottom part of my kidney. It's not causing any pain.
I have had a ESWL treatment and it brought the stone down to 3mm.
My health anxiety has sky rocketed so I do not know what to do anymore and really need this stone out of my system.
I have now the choice between a ureteroscopy or another shock wave treatment.
I am sure that the stone is that small that ureteroscopy should just require a basket maybe and then itll be out ... Although ... they are talking about putting a stent in and I am absolutely terrified by all the horror stories and side effects from what I have heard regarding the ureter stent ...
The urologist wasn't gonna do anything regardless but I have asked him nicely to get rid of it for peace of mind and he accepted.
Can someone please tell me what to do ! I am terrified ...
