I had 4 kidney stones in December and had to have a out patient surgery. One was half a inch and they removed that one and lazard the other three. It didn't hurt at all they put you to sleep. But they had to put in a stent in and I had it for a week. The stent is whats making you feel like you have to go to the bathroom all the time. After they took the stent out things went back to normal after a couple of days.
