Last month, we introduced a poll on stent pain and a survey on stent removal. We’ve had a great response so far, with over 500 responses to the poll and over 300 responses to the survey. You can see the results of our survey here.
By answering these surveys and polls, you are contributing to the community of kidney stone patients by letting others know what it is really like to go through the various trials and procedures that are often unfortunately a part of treatment for a kidney stone.
Our next survey is focused on different treatment options for kidney stones, which includes everything from letting the stone pass on its own, taking a home remedy, or different surgical options (shockwave lithotripsy, ureteroscopy, or percutaneous surgery).
We want to know why patients choose one option over another. We also are interested in what patients feel after having undergone a treatment- what did you like most about the treatment?; what did you like least?; and would you choose this option again?
Please take few minutes and complete the survey below. It’s anonymous and we’ll share the results on this website once we get enough responses.
[EDITOR’S NOTE 3/13/14: Our previous survey on treatment options for kidney stones has been closed. You can see the results here. Please keep an eye out for active surveys available on other pages of this site.]
