Lost kidney stent

by Terry
(Wisconsin)

I had a Stent put in last Thursday after they went in and broke up my stone.


I went in yesterday to get the stent removed and they could not find it. They believe it may be in my kidney. The pain is atrocious.

I haven't been able to find any information on lost stents. I have to go in next Tuesday for surgery to find and remove the lost one.

I'm wondering if anyone else has dealt with this before and if there are any possible side effects. My doctor didn't seem to concerned about it.

I just can't believe that If the sent is in my kidney that it can't be to good for it sitting in there. Any thoughts or feedback would be greatly appreciated!
