First Time Stent

by Sylvie
(Wiltshire uk)

After several months of severe kidney pain, I had urgent surgery and a stent was fitted. I am taking painkillers and antibiotics as I had developed sepsis following lithotripsy.


The stent has been in so far, seven (7) days post surgery and thankfully has not caused any problems. Sometimes I get a little bit of cramp for a few seconds occasionally but nothing else.

I didn't cope with the lithotripsy though, mainly due to the infection so the stent has been a blessing. I was very worried about it beforehand but so far so good.
