How long does bloody urine continue following kidney stone surgery with stent placement?

Great question! While we wait for others who have had this procedure done, can you fill us in on how long ago your surgery was, and a few more details? What has your doctor said about continued bloody urine?


Hello! I have had 3 kidney stone removal surgeries with stints. I had blood in my urine the whole time. Some was very light that was only a spear and days I walked more, my urine was like cranberry juice because the stint rubs inside your bladder. My body also rejects things, so 2 out of 3 my body was trying to unravel the top of the stint that is in my kidney to push it to my bladder by spasming. All 3 was about the same amount of blood. Hopefully that helps.


I had lithotripsy on 11/13/23 for a 6.5mm stone, urine was pink-clear by 11/14/23 am. That night it turned brownish red, and today more brown. I just messaged my urologist with a picture. Is this a normal color? Also have a lot of abdominal pain, but had TAH ten years ago.


I should mention I did NOT have a stent placed.


I had a 7mm stone requiring a stent placement because of infection for about 3 weeks. I pee'd blood and clots for about 10 days after the stent placement. I then had lithotripsy i.e. Surgeon removed stent, did lithotripsy, installed new stent which I removed 2 weeks later. Went perfect. No blood.
