Hello Mrs. Caca, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
URS or uteroscopy is one of the procedures performed to treat kidney stones, especially stones that are large enough so that if not done the action will scratch the channel that connects the kidneys to the bladder, so that blood comes out when urinating and very painful pain appears. performed using a uteroscope tool that is long and thin tube equipped with a lens at the end of the tube. The method for URS utilization is to collect rocks and take them out of the ureter if the rocks are estimated to be small enough, whereas if the rocks are estimated to be large enough, the uteroscope will emit a holmium laser that can break stones into small granules and can be removed from the kidney ducts into the bladder. urinary tract.
Initially after anesthesia, the doctor will insert a uteroscope from the lower urinary tract and then into the ureter (the channel connecting the kidney to the bladder) then if the stone has been removed or broken then the uteroscope will be removed, the fluid in the bladder will be emptied, however, there are certain conditions where a stent (a small tube that connects from the kidney to the bladder) will still be installed. The purpose of this stent is to facilitate the flow of urine from the kidneys to the bladder which is disturbed due to the blockage. If the URS is not visible during stone, the device may not be able to reach it, or there are other complications so that it is necessary to install a stent in the hope that the stone can come out on its own without having to injure the ureteral channel (the channel from the kidney to the bladder). It's just that it will be a little uncomfortable when you use a stent in daily activities. We advise you to consult your doctor again, because the doctor who treats you better understands your condition and what considerations are taken while still using a stent in your urinary tract.
All you need to do so far is to make sure not to do strenuous activities while you are still being treated, otherwise it is sufficient to meet your nutritional and fluid needs as recommended by the doctor who treats you. Thus information from us, may be useful. That's all
