Hey everyone. I found this forum looking for answers on how long I can expect discomfort after (1) a 9mm stone removed from right kidney and a stent put in and (2) 6 days later having a larger stone removed from a ureter that was a birth defect (I have two ureters on my right kidney) and it had formed a balloon on the end of it and the stone had formed within the balloon. They also had to put a slit in the balloon to keep it open so that another stone would not form in it. It's only been three days since the last surgery (stent in right kidney as well) but I am having terrible bladder spasms as I refer to them. Anyone out there have any history that is similar they could share?

Welcome to Healing Well. 9mm is a quite large stone. I once had a 10mm and thought I was gonna die, LOL.

Anyway, I have a terrible time after stone removal and stent placement. I get horrible bladder spasms as well and my body just doesn't deal with the stents well at all. I haven't been able to keep one in for more that about 4 or 5 days without pain meds and meds for the spasms.

Call your urologist and see if they will prescribe something for the spasms.

Take care,
