Customer Question
I have to have stent...
I have to have stent, in my rt.uretha, replaced every three months, This is because of scar tissue that formed after ADD surgery. I recently had open heart & three way bi-pass surgery. I'm now having pressure & pain in the bladder even tho there appears to be no infection. In about two mo's I will be due for another stent replacement. I am very concerned about going under anesthesia & taking anti-biotics since I am on Coumadin. The pressure & pain in the bladder area is a big concern & my urologist is very puzzled. Right now I am on piridium. it helps, but not enough. There are other issues, but this is foremost right now.

HI
Can you elaborate on the surgery which caused the scar in the ureter ?
What is the location and length of the stricture ? When was it first diagnosed?
Have you tried long duration stents ?
Have you tried any other medications like tolterodine, flavoxate etc for the bladder pain?
Please let me know.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
