My surgery went great and they finally got the stone. He had to put another stent in because he broke it up so he wanted to make sure all the pieces come out. So I'm still in pain from the stent and even more nervous when he pulls it out in a couple of weeks. Because I have read you are in a lot of pain after the stent is removed. Next step after that is to do lab work to make sure my kidney functions are good and see if I still have protein in my urine which is a sign of lupus nephritis but also a sign of lesser issues. So thank you all for your prayers, support, and advice. I'm so blessed to have found this support group. Speaking of protein in the urine that was a sign of me having Sjögren's syndrome and lupus so I was wondering to my Sjögren's and lupus people do you still have protein in your urine and go to the bathroom a lot at night and how often do you test for it.
