I am now 30 weeks pregnant with my third Child.
When I was 8 weeks I found out i had a severe kidney infection and a large kidney stone 9 by 12 mil (about 1/4 by 1/2 in). They had to do surgery to put a stent in place since the stone was completely blocking my right kidney. I have been in the hospital again for another kidney infection. They at 22 weeks had to have the stent replaced. I have been battling one infection after another since the first hospital stay. Between the infections and the constant pain caused by the stent I am more than ready to have this pregnancy over. I am scared for my child though, with both surgeries as well as one other time I have had x-rays done, I have had to be on some heavy pain meds and have had to be on a constant antibiotic. Has anybody had kidney stones while pregnant, what were your results? I am having shockwave lithotropsy and stent removal done 2 weeks after a c-section, how painful will this be?
