Stent removal - Verdict: Not so terrible

Today at 3pm I had my stent removed. Since I found out that I was going to need to have this removed I have been searching the net for what to expect. I have read horror stories of it being very painful to others saying that it really wasn't all that bad.

I have to say other than some discomfort and tense nerves it really wasn't all that bad. Just like every other removal (I though the central line was the last) I built it up to be more than it actually was. At the moment it is hurting to urinate a little, but that is to be expected. After the procedure was completed I walked out right away, go dressed and I was on my way. The whole procedure didn't take more than 10 minutes at the most.
