I am in remission from having colorectal cancer. Its gone. But I am having issues with my kidneys. The right one has shrunk. The left kidney is fine. Almpst over a year now been going to the dr to have stent replaced or exchanged. Everytime I would end up having a UTI. The dr wants to try a metal stent which would stay in 4 a yr.
