My Kidney Stent Experience

by Cecilia
(Attalla, AL USA)

Kidney stents hurt (... at least, that has been my experience).


It has been four (4) days now since I had a kidney stent inserted and so far, the experience has not been a very pleasant one. The first day the stent was inserted, my urine was as clear as water. It wasn't until sometime after that I started bleeding whenever urinating.

I am experiencing pain when doing even simple tasks, such as loading the dishwasher and doing the laundry. Even washing my hair is painful.

So far, my experience with this stent has not been so pleasant. The pain and discomfort are really annoying. It has only been four (4) days, so hopefully things will get better as time goes by.

I hope that other people who have a kidney stent don't experience the same problems that I am having.

Stent
by: Anonymous

Two (2) days ago I got my kidney stent inserted and it was painful, even though they numbed my penis, injected morphine and gave me painkillers.

For me, the most painful part is when they put the tube into your bladder and when the stent is being set in place. After that no pain really, just discomfort, especially when I have to urinate (and I have to urinate frequently). Also, there is blood in my urine, almost every time I go to the bathroom.

Unpleasant Kidney Stent Experience
by: Site Admin

Unfortunately, some patients do not have pleasant experiences with kidney stents. Sorry to hear that your experience, so far, falls into the unpleasant category.

Hopefully, your condition will improve soon and you can have the stent removed. If you continue to experience lots of pains and discomfort, you should consult your doctor and ask him/ her to check that everything is okay.

Thanks for sharing your experiences... Hopefully, your next post on this site will be one of relief and celebration!

This Kidney Stent Sucks
by: Anonymous

I just received my stent because of a 5mm stone. It is very painful, and I have been urinating blood ever since I got home. It actually looks like cranberry juice. Hope it gets better. I am only supposed to have it for a week or two. So we will see.
