PLEASE HELP-Surgery for Asymptomatic Kidney Stone?
I have an asymptomatic Right ureteral stone that has been stuck for over 3 weeks...At least the CT scan (x 2 scans) states probable stone although they have difficulty tracing the ureter. My urologist wants to remove the stone even though it is asymptomatic to prevent potential kidney damage.
- Has anyone had surgery for an asymptomatic stone (I only have an occassional dull ache)?
- Anyone had a decent experience with a ureteroscopy with stent placement...All the blogs I've read sound like it is a HORRIBLE procedure?
I have no pain now and am struggling knowing I will be in pain shortly- Surgery scheduled on November 20th
