It comes and goes but my pain level is a 10.i finally went to go for a checkup and they said it might be where the stent is rubbing and agitating the bottom of my bladder. Is there anyway I can make it stoo hurting

General Surgeon 's  Response

* The pain in genital area is referred pain from stent end in the bladder region.
* Though primary care with analgesic and urinary alkaliser, antibiotics to prevent secondary infection are best remedy; the ultimate solution is removal of stent if its function is over or change of stent if it is still further needed for healing of pyeloplasty.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you. Take care.
