| | Why do dr's put stents in after surgery for kidney stones?
HI! Guys. I have kind of a crazy question. I just had surgery on my second Kidney stone and had a uroscopy done on it and of course I have had the stent in for 5 days now. This thing is the most uncomfortable thing ever. I have to pee every 5 minutes. Each time I get up to do anything here I go again to the bathroom. I have been so grouchy with this thing in me. Anyway, Why do the doctors have to put this thing in after surgery? All it does is make you use the bathroom every 5 minutes.
