Pain not getting better

I had a stent inserted in January after my ureter was injured during a hysterectomy. I was told that I that the stent has to stay in for seventeen (17) weeks.


I am currently on week 7 and the pain is terrible. I was admitted to hospital on Saturday and they did an ultrasound, which showed my kidney is still dilated and had not improved with the stent placement.

I was discharged with strong pain with no relief. Surely this cannot be normal? I thought my kidney would not be dilated after stent placement and I'm worried that it is not working properly.

Has anyone else had a similar experience? Also, I do not think I can tolerate this for a further 10 weeks!
