Implants After Kidney Stone Surgery?
I want to ask my husband after kidney stone surgery, the doctor had implants installed, so what I want to ask is what is the function of the implants that were placed in my husband’s body, because I didn’t use family planning dangerous or not if we have sex
Hallo Karsih, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
The implants that are placed after kidney stone surgery you mean may be a DJ stent or a double J stent, an implant-like device that is shaped like two J's. This tool is placed in the ureter, one tail is in the pelvicocalyx system of the kidney and the other is in the urinary tract. Its function is to facilitate the flow of urine from the kidneys to the bladder, making it easier to carry urinary stone flakes. Indications for installation of this tool are:
Connecting the severed ureter If during surgery the ureter lining is injured So that urine can come out even though the ureter opening is swollen after kidney stone surgery Narrowing of the ureter Surgery for a large number of kidney stones with the possibility of remaining stones Large kidney stones To secure the urinary tract in cervical cancer patients To secure the kidneys when both kidneys or ureters are blocked. In patients with kidney failure due to urinary obstruction. If your husband has a stent installed, you should avoid intercourse first, because it will be at risk of shifting its position and causing pain, because of the movement during intercourse. should postpone sexual intercourse until the doctor removes the stent on your husband. If you are still in doubt, you should consult the urological surgeon who operated on your husband.
Thank you, hopefully useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
