I've had kidney stents in for 3 weeks now and it's been the worse feeling ever. These stents were fitted after some problems with kidney stones.
So far, my experience with these stents has been very unpleasant. I have found them to be worse than recovering from a full hysterectomy. The discomfort, pain and generally feeling poorly is sometimes unbearable... It has been a horrible and awful experience.
I am constantly going to the toilet and experiencing pain when passing urine. Even my bowels have stopped working properly. I just wish it was all over.
I've been back to the hospital twice in two (2) weeks. I was given a date to return to the hospital to remove the stents but they had to cancel the appointment. Now I am at my wits end suffering and not knowing when I'll get another appointment to finally get rid of these stents.
I would not wish the experience I have had with stents on anyone else. For those with stent or who may have to have stents inserted, I just hope it doesn't get as bad as this for you....
