Discussions that mention ditropan

Kidney Disorders board


Hi Gail, I am having my stent removed on Monday and I am scared also. I am planning on taking 2 vicodin and Ditropan. Some people say it hurts a lot and others say not at all so we will just have to see how it goes for me. I also recently had a baby. He is 4 months old. I have hated having this stent. I am having lithotripsy on the other side on May 1. I am going to see if I don't have to have a stent this time. As far as which drug to take, I think either Percocet or Vicodin are OK. I took Percocet after my c-section and I am taking Vicodin now. They seem about the same. Do you recommend to be put to sleep during lithotripsy? My dr. just wants to sedate me, but I don't know about that. I will let you know how it goes on Monday. Good Luck to you and I hope you feel better. By the way, do you think the pregnancy caused your kidney stones? I think mine were caused by eating so much Tums in my last trimester for heartburn. I'll never do that again. I'd rather have heartburn than kidney stones anyday. Take care...
