Stone in the kidney
5 months back my husband had a stone in the kidney. We removed the stone immediately by urethroscopy. The doctor has placed a stent. However he did not mention anything about removing the stent. And it was all fine and we relocated to Bangalore just 2 weeks after the urethroscopy and dint consult the doctor after having 2 visits with him. But he has pain in his stomach (where the stent is placed) whenever he walks for a long distance or runs and has discomforts. We now come to know that the stent has to be removed within 3-4 months of treatment. We have left it for almost 5 months. Will there be any complications in removing it. How long will it take to remove the stent and does he need to undergo any medications after that. Because depending on the seriousness we have to decide whether to go to our native to treat it or get it done in Bangalore itself. Please advice.
