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?
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?
