    Ureter stent causing pain

    I had a kidney stone taken out and a ureter stent put in. It's been 2 days and I am very uncomfortable and in pain from the stent. Will this go away soon? Im still peeing blood too and sometimes get little pieces of dried blood that come out.

    RE: Ureter stent causing pain

    Hi,
    About your stent causing you pain. I had to have a stent for 6 weeks due to enlarged ureter and reflux up into my kidney. The pain from my stent progressed from uncomfortable to intolerable. I was prescribed oxybutynin to control bladder spasms from the stent. The Dr thought she had prescribed tamsulosin but had not. She did, and that helped alot. Tamsulosin helps smooth out and relax the ureter and surrounding muscles. I also had hydrocodone 5/ acetaminophen 325 otherwise known as norco for pain. But when that stopped helping she prescribed keterolac which was amazingly helpful.
    They tried to tell me I would be able to go back to work with the stent in. I told them there was no way as I am a pharmacy technician which is a fast paced job and I could barely walk to the bathroom. So I stayed off work and drank plenty of water. Heating pad helped me also but check with your Dr to be sure it's ok.
    I hope this information helps you. Oh, I peed blood the whole 6 weeks. The more water you drink, the less red it will be, but it's normal.

    That is not unusual for the stents, however, you should check with your Dr.

    I've had stents in multiple times and this is fairly normal to experience. I did miss plenty of work when I've had them in due to being unable to walk. normally and just the overall pain.
