To make a long story short, I had kidney stones in both my kidneys and I had to have surgery to remove the stones from both my kidneys. The stones in both my kidneys were too big to be dissolved, so surgery was my only option according to the doctor. My left side kidney was first for surgery and my doctor was able to successfully remove all of the stones. Currently, it is a different story for my right side kidney. My doctor could not get any of the stones out because he said that the stones were sitting pretty high in my right kidney. So, I was given three options - two viable but the third not so viable - for my right side kidney. Option one was to leave the stones alone, which I do not want. Option two was to go through surgery again and the doctor would have to enter through a different entrance point to my right side kidney. Option three was going through the front side, but the doctor said he would have to enter through my ribs, but he said that was way too dangerous, so it really was not a viable option. So, just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience to mine because this second attempt into my right side kidney to remove stones has a 50/50 chance of success? If you had this experience, I was wondering also if it was successful and what your doctor had to do or what you had to do? Or did you get a second opinion? Thank you.
