Sun, Jan 6 6:12am · Kidney stones in Kidney & Bladder

Colleen, how long did it take to pass the stone?

Dec 30, 2018 · Kidney stones in Kidney & Bladder

My husband has been diagnosed with 2 kidney stones. The one on top is a 4 in size and the one on the bottom a 6. He had an appointment with a urologist a few days ago. He thought my husband should have a ureterscopy surgery with a stint inserted to get rid of the stones. He also mentioned lithotripsy. He said the second procedure had a 50-75% chance of getting rid of them and was less invasive than the ureteroscophy which has a 100% chance to remove them. Has anyone had either procedure and what was your recuperation like?
Thank You,
Nancy

My husband had 2 stones. His Doctor recommended either surgery which has a 100% chance of getting rid of them or a less invasive procedure that breaks them up so you can pass them. It has 50-75% chance. He is trying to decide what to do. Has anyone else had either of these procedures?

My sister said the head piece was not as bad as she expected. It did hurt a little at first. She had some headaches and some numbness after but no serious side effects..

Hello, my sister had Gamma Knife radiation last year at Mayo Rochester. She goes back this month for another MRI to see if the tumors responded, hopefully shrunk. I will be back in touch with her results.
