Unhappy kidney stones,not moving!

well ive been peeing visible blood for 3 months now,its taken all this to have numerous scans etc,i have a large left kidney with numerous kidney stones,i dont have any symptons other than blood,im still waiting to see my urologist as to whats going to happen as i guess they are not moving on there own,my prob is i am flying to spain for my henweekend in 3 weeks and they want to put a stent in,i have read that these are uncomfortable and painful,i dont want to spend 4 days in agony,ive been left for months i dont see why its now urgent for me to have a stent,and ruin my weekend,do they sometimes put them in to drain and then remove them after a few days?
i wonder if i should say no,and just hope all is ok while im away,i have more than adequate insurance,does anyone have anything positive to say about stents?

Re: kidney stones,not moving!

I wouldn't be surprised for the next step to be one of the forms of Lithotripsy, either Shock Wave or Laser (Pew Pew) That will turn the stones in to small fragments that will pass or they could go for percutaneous nephrolithotomy (Surgical removal of the stones)

(Having had a ureter stent in, yes it hurts, like hell!)

Good luck and hope that you get it all taken care of soon.

Re: kidney stones,not moving!

thank you,they are doing an op first to cut the narrow part from my tube,and reattach so its wider,then sorting stones after as they are concerened my tube is too small to pass the fragments
