Question: why do they want to put a stent in my kidney
Answered by Dr. Rudina Balliu 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
To speed up the recovery.

Detailed Answer:


I have gone through your question and I can understand your concern.

Did you have any kidney operation or stone in your kidney?

The stent is generally put between your kidney and ureter (the tracts connecting the kidneys to the urinary bladder) to help the urine, and drainage come easily from the kidney, in this way your kidney will recover faster.

Hope the answer is helpful!

Take care!
