During Procedure

Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is performed by an experienced urologist. It is performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon puts a cut in the back of the body to insert a tube into the kidney via bladder. X-ray will be used to find the exact location of the stone and access them. If the stone is large to fit the tube, then it is broken into smaller pieces. Stones are drained through the tube. The surgeon might leave the tube inside for a few hours to ensure that all the stone fragments have drained out.

Post Procedure

The patient has to stay in hospital for 1 to 2 days after the procedure. Tests like X - ray and ultrasound are carried out after a few days to make sure that none of the stone particles are left behind. The recovery time after this procedure ranges between a few days to several weeks depending on the condition of the patient before the procedure and the effects that the stone had on the organ. If there are no complications following the procedure, the patient can recover completely in a week’s time. The doctor will recommend increasing intake of water considerably. The patients are advised to limit the intake of foods with high protein content and salt. Meats, bananas, pulses, nuts, coffee and green leafy vegetables should be avoided during the recovery period.

These include: Small pieces of stones lodged into the ureters, blocking the flow of urine from the kidneys to the bladder.Abnormality developing in the kidney function.
