Kidney Stone surgery #3

I am now scheduled for my third surgery for this year.  Each one has dealt with the same kidney stone, that I have had for about a year and a half.  I will have surgery, on Thursday, November 8 at 1 pm. I wanted it done on a Friday, since it one be an easy day for my sub, but is not.  I am supposed to be able to go back to school the next day.  But I will be prepared for a sub for the next day, just in case.

The Kidney Stone is Stuck

The title says it all.  Nobody knew back in the spring, that my stone would not move at all.  It did get smaller by the  first shock wave surgery, but this second one last month, nada!  It just sat there.  It is stuck!  Next month, another surgery, this time to move it, unstick it, so that I will be able to pass it.  A stent will also be placed between the kidney and the bladder, to help that area heal.  Doctor is afraid that if nothing is done I will eventually have problems.  Date of the surgery will be decided on next week.
