Riding with Kidney Stones and a Stint..... A guide for future cyclists

I wanted to share some experiences with riding with kidney stones and a stent which I hope will help future folks.

Riding with kidney stones: This can be done but a lot of movement will irritate the kidneys and I do think that a lot of movement will encourage the kidney stones to move which is a good thing and a bad thing. Movement means they will pass quicker (depending on size) but the movement really hurts, especially when they pass into the bladder.

Riding with a stent: This, I think actually hurts more. Movement will REALLY irritate the stent which will rub both your kidneys and bladder. It makes your kidneys very tender and it irritates the bladder which will make you want to pee every half mile and when you pee, it will be short spirts and will be very bloody. Then you get back on your bike and down the road, you have to do it all over again.

And this is not just with riding but with movement period. It all irritates the stent which will irritate the bladder and kidneys.

Just some insights which I hope will help.

Wow, that has got to be no fun. I've been lucky, I guess, with this hernia situation. Every time I ride I get extremely nauseous and get some truly world class cramping going on. This ultimately leads to diarrhea (nice). I have, so far, made it home before the Emergency Evac kicks in but I dread the day when it's gonna catch me out on the side of the road in broad daylight and leave me with no other choice but to stop and squat. Ugh, the things we do so we can ride a bike... lol
