Re: how big is 6mm kidney stone in cm
I had laser surgery (to break up my stones) and my new URO said this wasn't even necessary because my stones weren't big enough to need this for them to pass on through, but I had a stent put in me after the laser surgery and it caused me a great deal of pain, I think my kidneys would have went into failure if it had stayed in me (blood was too large to count, protein 3+, my kidney all swelled), and I've never had kidney problems or high protein like that, well then I had to have it taken out early cause it hurt so bad. I begged the ER to it was so bad but I had to wait the next day for my URO. And it hurt like a MF'r having it taken out. I don't know what your method of treatment may be, but if you can avoid a stent, I would. IT HURTS! I was asleep for the laser surgery so as far as that goes, I didn't feel anything. But you will be happy to get all that resolved and get those darn things out of you and not have to put up with that chronic pain it causes anymore, if the doctor treats it, with it being non-obstructed, they might just keep and eye on you and wait and see. IDK.
