My mom had a non-functioning stent removed in mid-April in a urologists office. The urologist inserted an aparatus with a flexible "arm" sort of thing that pulled it out. Almost one month later, she was hospitalized with what one docto
r said was a "kidney staph infection
." A month after being released, she was hospitalized again with a kidney Abscess
. Could these infection
s be related to
the actual stent removal procedure?
