He was diagnosed with a stone in the ureter in April and was in considerable pain. He was fitted with a stent and had to wait 6 weeks for an operation to blast the stone, he was hoping this would solve the problem but the pain persisted.
He later found that particles of the stone had gone back into the kidney and that there was much 'gravel' still in the ureter and there was possible damage from the stent.
He is still in much pain and very depressed, he is also on a horrendous cocktail of drugs which make him mentally confused. He is concerned about losing his job which he loves and no longer getting paid. Can nothing be done?
