You have been operated with pcnl for stone disease.

You can do all routine work except any jerky movements, jumping, vigorous sports, or direct pressure on the operative site.

There are not many precautions. You can drive, and you can have physical relation but taking care of any direct pressure on the operative site. The stent can be removed after two weeks. These precautions should be taken for one week post operative period.

Hope this helps, if any other query please write in.
