How I Cope With Kidney Stent
I have a kidney stent that was inserted one (1) week ago and will have it removed at the end of two weeks.
It is slightly uncomfortable but I manage the pain through drinking 2 quarts of water a day.
Drinking water really helps but it keeps you looking for a bathroom. The urge hits without warning.
I also try to walk daily, about 3/4 or 1 mile.
I have no pain when I walk. I'm walking to avoid blood clots. I walk at a comfortable pace. Presently because of the cold snowy weather I walk on the treadmill.
I also spend a lot of time reading for pleasure.
We can get through this; it's like having a very small pebble in the shoe... Mind-over-matter.
Good luck! I will tell you about the removal of the stent later.
