I have been diagnosed with a kidney that is not draining well because of a stricture where the ureter comes out of the kidney. Fortunately my other kidney is working well and doing more than its share of the work. The urologist put in a stent which I had for 2 weeks and which was removed two days ago. I had terrible pain the next day....muscle spasms I was told to expect, but worse that when the stent was put in. The doctor does not think I have anything to worry about but has me on a six month recall. He explained my options, do nothing, possible lap.surgery to remove stricture and resection ureter. So I am counting my blessings.....
