Had my first lipo., urteroscopy and stent placement on Wednesday (dec 5). They were able to get the stone (4mm) so that's good news. This is my 7th or 8th stone in the past few years (always passed on their own).
Anyhow, I also have severe IC so this stent is really killing me. I've been given perscriptions for vicodin, percaset, keterlorac, dialuid and norco just in the past 3 days alone. Nothing is helping with this pain. I can get about 2-3 hours of relief and that's it. I called and BEGGED the dr to take the stent out 3 times now, he refused. Said it won't be removed until Dec 17.
Honestly it's becoming a mental health issue at times- I've been in constant pain for 3 days and sometimes just don't feel like I can continue this.
I absolutely understand why the stent is there and respect his opinion from a medical standpoint. HOWEVER, I'm in agony. And not to mention, I start a new job on Monday and have a 2.5 year old.
Thoughts??? I can't live like this
