Red face Re: UPJ Obstruction, Recovering from Retrograde Endopyelotomy/Pyeloplasty

Hi, I had Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction— Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty 7/12/12 and sounds like my procedure was different than yours. Had to go back to surgeon 7/18/12 because stent clogged and a nephrostomy tube was needed. I am mostly out of pain now 8/18/12 and sounds like something is very wrong with yours. I would seek another opinion. Good luck. And as far as the meds and no one believing you about the pain, no one believed me either until I saw Dr. Caddedu. Apparently this particular problem is not something most urologists are familiar with and this combined with fact complaining of kidney stones / kidney pain is common drug seeking behavior your doctors probably just didn't understand.
