    Uretheral Stent

    Procedure or Surgery

    After a mass was found via colonoscopy and confirmed via CAT scan a blocking stone was found in a kidney. They performed a right ureteroscopy with holonium laser lithotripsy and inserted a uretheral stent with I hope to have removed this week. All this in prep for the right hemicolectomy in Dec. The stent causes urinary urgency to the extreme.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
