I recently discovered I had kidney stones
now, tomorrow, I am having my second lithotripsy, as the first one did not work. How long do they keep these miserable, stents in, and how many times can one get lithotripsies? Does surgery come next if the lithotripsies don't work? It's funny---I am a nurse, and have been for many, many years, but don't know these answers. I work full time, yet, and this stent is making my life very difficult.
