Glad to hear that the clots have stopped; as for the stent!!!! They are the PITS!!!!!!! There really is nothing that makes them comfortable; I currently have to have one in for at least 10 months with it getting changed every 3 months. I've tried just about eevery spasm med and nothing works. The longer you are on your feet the worse it is and the more it spasms. The best thing that has worked for me is to take ditropan 4xs a day and half a vicodin in the morning and the other half at lunch. I have a very high tolerance for pain so you may want to use the vicodin around the clock. The only problem with the ditropan is that it is extremely drying so you have to chew gum or suck on hard candy all the time and yes it does cause constipation, even with my colectomy.
I feel for you, but if you can just lay low and do the very minimum, you can get through it. I wish you the very best!
