After consulting my doctor, we decided that having surgery to remove the stones was pretty pointless. After all, I have f'er #1 sitting in my bathroom (still), while f'er #2 is either AWOL, or pretty close to shirking off it's ureteral coil. So, on Thursday, the surgery for Friday was canceled (thank God), and the normal plan of having the stent removed at the doctor's office is on-track for Monday. I'm extremely relieved to finally be rid of the stent, since it has occasionally caused some discomfort (not too much that I regret it, but enough to let me know it's still there).
The end of the road to this kidney stone saga? Yeah, I'm ready for it.
