Re: Blood in Urine due to a Stent...Question
I had a stent in for 5 months (December 2000 to May 2001), 3 months (May 2001 to August 2001), and then for a month and a half (stent removed in September 2001).
ETA: I had the stents because I had a UPJ and UVJ obstruction in my left ureter and had non-invasive procedures done to correct them.
At the beginning I would have blood in my urine frequently. As the days went by, I don't think I had as much. However, when I did a strenuous activity (e.g., dance), I would have a considerable amount of blood in my urine. One time I was on vacation, and we were walking around a lot. I believe the whole toilet was full of blood (sorry if it's TMI). I don't think my urologist was extremely concerned about it, but he probably advised me to go easy on the strenuous activities.
Sometimes I wonder if that damaged my ureter/kidney in any way.
