Customer Question

stent was placed yesterday in daughter. Md stated I should remove it for her today. I am the mother, RN surg nurse. she is in severe pain, never has felt better since placement. Just premidicate her with AZO, ibuprofen, pain med and pull slowly? I'm sure it will her her, but this isn't something I've done. All my patients are sleeping when I have them ;)
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: She had a good sized stone removed yesterday. High discomfort since stent placement yesterday.
JA: Is there anything else in your medical history you would like the urologist to know?
Customer: no. I am asking about removing her stent. Her ureter swelling after removal is my concern. Is it an issue, and how long should it last.?

Sorry to hear about your daughter issue ...

It would be ideal that you should once consult her Doctor as , ideally swelling and severe pain shouldn't be there ...

Pain is not worrying , but swelling should be checked ...

So please once see her dr .

Good luck .

Let me know if you have further quires .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
