Did Anyone Have Kidney Stones Blasted To Break Them Up And How Was The Recovery If You Did?

Did Anyone Have Kidney Stones Blasted To Break Them Up And How Was The Recovery If You Did?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I recently had a stone blasted, and it wasn't bad at all. They put me totally out for the procedure, which took about an hour. I had a nice sized bruise on my back and was pretty beat up afterwards, but pain meds helped a lot. I find out in two weeks whether it has all passed or not. I would much rather have the procedure as a preventative than to be caught in an emergency situation.

I had lithotrispy on a very large stone and then that's when the fibromyalgia pain started but I wans't diagnosed for sometime afterward. . I did have a problem with the medication causing constipation and fatigue four days afterwards that kept me in the bed for two days. I will have the procedure again if my stone gets to big, but I will tell you it took months to pass all of the stone (sand) and two months afterwards I passed a chunk. Hope you do well.

@A MyFibroTeam Member - thank you for answering. Your post made me feel better. That is what I have been told. How long do you realistically think it will be before I can go back to work. I'm having it done on a Wednesday?

The adage why fix it if it's not broken, I had several mobile gall stones about 12 yrs ago, it was about 10 days after they were found that I was rushed into surgery.
It's best to get surgery performed before trouble strikes. Also had an emergency appendices. That was scary
