Kidney Stent Better than Kidney Stones
(Greenville sc 29607)
Last Tuesday night (September 30, 2014) I was diagnosed with kidney stones. But unknown to me, I had been passing a few stones along the way. (It seems that I have a very high tolerance for pain).
At first, after hearing and accepting the news, I thought that it would have been best for my body and me to allow the stones to pass naturally... That, however, was a no go.
As it turns out, I had outpatient surgery today (Monday October 6, 2014) and woke up with a kidney stent. The doctor got most but not all of the stones out. The stent is slightly uncomfortable especially when changing from sitting to standing (and vice versa). I also experience some discomfort when bending and using the restroom.
In all, the stent is a cake walk compared to a Bartholin glad catheter (aka stent). At least, that is the way I look at it. I always try to look for the light at the end of the tunnel, and I encourage others to do the same.
Always remember, if you don't see the light at the end of the tunnel... Maybe YOU are the light (author unknown).
Hope this helps, good luck!
