Kidney Stent Experience
On September 12, 2012, I had surgery on my back. But because of having 3 previous surgeries on my lower back, they decided to go through my stomach.
Well, when they did, they accidentally cut my ureter in half. It took them 3 months of telling me it was a hematoma to finally do a cat scan. When they did, they saw it wasn't.
I had 6 liters of urine removed from my stomach. It took 6 months before they could go in to repair it. I was relieved that the 2 ends of the ureter went back together.
I am working on getting my 4th stent. They put one in on August 5th, but had to remove it on August 16th because I could not tolerate it. I do have problems, but with pain medicine it helps. I'm hoping this will be my last one, and I will finally be well again.
