Q | discharge advice
A | Once discharged, some patients may require a few days off from work. Driving can recommence immediately as long as you are pain free. You should avoid heavy lifting or straining for the first few days. You may have some pink colour to the urine for a week, which is normal.
You will be given an appointment to attend the outpatient clinic about 3-4 weeks after surgery. Any questions can be answered at this time. You may be booked in to have formal Metabolic Stone Analysis (MSA), so that advice can be given as to how to try and prevent further stones forming in the future.
