Uncomfortable Kidney Stent
I was (eventually) diagnosed with idiopathic renal fibrosis which caused my kidneys to go into renal failure. After having nephrostomy bags as an emergency measure it was then decided to put stents from my kidneys to my bladder.
This was on May 14 and I was told they would be in for about six months to give the medication a chance to work.
I am permanently uncomfortable feeling like I need to use the toilet all the time. The more I move about the worse it is and the more blood I get in my urine. I experience hot sweats and generally feel unwell; sex is a no go because it hurts.
Because of these complications, I have not been able to return to work.
I am glad (comforted) to know that other people have had problems with kidney stents and it's not just me being a baby.
