Stent removed!

Had an open partial neph on my right kidney on 1/26.  During the procedure, my ureter was cut.  My surgeon repaired it and put in a stent.  It irritated me over the last month, but not horrible.   I had it removed today.  Wow.  That wasn’t fun.   How long does the burn last during urination?    I burns the same as the stem being removed, so hoping it resolves quick.   Thanks!

    Glad the stent was removed. 

    Glad the stent was removed.  I hope they gave you a round of antibiotics and checked for uti just in case. The burn shouldn't last more than a few days, but everyone and every case is different.  Feel good!
