Hi, new to this but I'm looking for anyone who has experienced staghorn kidney stones. I have on my right two stones, 1" and 3/4" on my left 1 1/4" . My urologist says these are pretty large especially considering I'm a 27yo female. I am schedule to have percutaneous nephrolithotomy done July 17. My question is what should I expect after surgery and which the stent? Also is there anything that helps to ease the discomfort I'm having now? Flank pain and the constant feeling of needing to go? Any help would be appreciated, I've never met anyone who has had these issues before! Thanks!View Thread
Has she been checked for kidney stones? I have had tons of utis ( or diagnosed as such) take antibiotics and fine for a few weeks and then back pain nausea and such kick in. I've had 20 or more in 2 years. I just found out I have kidney stones. Big ones. I was a little upset no one tested me for this sooner as I didn't have the typical symptoms of uti. Recently found out what I had been experiencing was renal colic. Maybe similar situation?View Thread
