Second Kidney Stent Removal

by James Black
(Jacksonville, Fl.)

Two weeks following the removal of a 6mm kidney stone, I prepared for kidney stent removal. Forty five (45) minutes before the procedure, I took a Valium ca.... plus two Tylenol tablets.

Glad I did! When the young nurse came in to prep me (a male patient), it was a bit of a surprise that she took my private part in her hand and inserted two needles for some easing of the process. (I now know how some women must feel when a male doctor does a pelvic exam on them!).

I was relatively comfortable the rest of the day, thanks to the Valium and another prescription pain pill I took right after the procedure. It only hurt twice (number 7 or 8 on the pain scale of 10) when the scope was in me for a few seconds... First, when it went into the bladder and when the kidney stent was extracted.

The next two days, it stung/burned when I urinated. Then, I was back to normal and life goes on as usual. Not really all that bad but, all said and done, I would have preferred to get some ice cream and go to the circus!

No More Kidney Stents

I'm happy that your stent has been removed, notwithstanding the awkward and somewhat painful experience. Also it's good to know that things are back to normal.

Hopefully, you won't have to go through this experience ever again!

Thanks for sharing.
