Kegels exercises did not help me, it was frustrasting, also, I tried other methods and drugs such as Avodart (dutasteride) and Proscar (finasteride) but the only thing that really helped me was a supplement named alpharise and wokingout often , it worked miracles on me.

OK. I had one kidney stone ureteroscopy four years ago (age 61 and healthy); followed 5 days later by removal of an upward migrating stent that required going back under anesthesia in the OR to remove the stent (the urologist was unable to retrieve the stent in his office). And NO ONE suggested; warned or aided me with advice to do kegel exercises. My Bride had practiced kegels on advice from her OB/GYN after her second delivery. So, I thought-wow!-that’s a great idea with ‘kegeling’. My problem for 4 months post-procedure was I was doing the kegel exercise anyway–albeit in my own fashion and out of sheer necessity. More post-procedure information (even handouts or web links) would certainly go a long way for improved recovery.
Your article is very helpful and I wish I had a copy of this with my post ureteroscopy packet. Thank you.
