Today i went to have my kidney drains removed they where only able to remove one as the other one the pipe was 2 narrow n the urine wasn’t passing to my bladder enough does this mean my tumour still pressing on my pipe x
Hello Helpme It's more than likely scar tissue or fibrous tissue that is compressing your ureter. I'm not sure what they do next. I'm sure it's lovely to get them out. What have they said is next?
Maybe an internal stent or change the tube for the nephostomy n b stuck with it longer i am happy that one gone i was lookin forward to both bein gone i go on hol in bout 4 weeks n was hoping to be able to go swimmin with ny daughter im dying for a bath only hsd strip washes since jan its not the same I'm sorry to moan again x
when you say you've had tubes/stents and your kidneys are draining correctly - do you mean you've had a pipe coming out your bag and draining into a bag or that you've had stents inserted into your kidneys into your bladder? I've had both so can offer so help/advice....
my cancer is advanced and cancer had begun to grow in one of my kidney tubes so to stop my tubes from blocking I had internal stents put in to drain into my bladder which worked as they opened the tube. I then ended up in hospital with an infection (one of many) and they did a scan which showed that the stent in my left kidney was blocked (your kidneys dispense of crap which you won't see when you wee unless you have a bag then you can see it) so due to this I had to have a external tube inserted to drain my kidney to stop it from dying and then they changed my stents (they're suppose to be changed every 6 months I'd had mine for 14 months).
i now have neither and fingers crossed won't have to have them again but I do have a stoma which is because I have a fistula (hole between my cervix and bladder) and it was my choice to have this - if you would like to talk more you can message me - I'm not always on here so please don't think I'm ignoring you xxx
I have external drain ( nephostomy) i did have bilateral nephostomy until yesterday when they removed the left one but when they put the contrast in left one i got pain in my belly instantly n it was draining extremely slowly so my kidney was becoming distended again so they left the right one in x
