Tomorrow i'm having a cystoscopy done to remove a renal stent. They did not give me any instructions at my last visit. Today they called me to confirm my procedure and asked,"you haven't taken any aspirin this week right?" I explained that no one told me that..but ive been taking percocets because the pain was so unbearable. She said she had to ask the Dr but i'm wondering if anyone knows if there is aspirin in percs? I googled the active ingredients in percs but my phone is acting stupid.

It can contain it.  It usually contains acetaminophen, that is where the 3/525 comes from (the 525 part).  If that is how yours is prescribed I would assume you can take it.   It's is usually mixed with something and sometimes it's aspirin.  Call the pharmacy that filled it and ask them.

I was a pain management nurse, if you have any questions pm me.

Yes. I have chronic hydronephrosis of the left side. when I was pregnant I had an episode so bad that caused pleura effusion up to My lungs. I was on a bipap in icu.. Scariest freaking thing. My o2 sat was only 79/80.

My DS has Severe Bilateral Hydronephrosis and Chronic Kidney Failure. He has had stents, Nephrostomy tubes, and nothing has ever gotten the dilation to go down. That is so scary about the pleural effusion!! How is your function? Do they know what caused the hydro? DS had Grade 5 Bilateral VUR and a urethral birth defect.

Im glad that your right side is good. Its a horrible painful existance sometimes. DS used to get constant
Kidney infections but thankfully since he got a urinary diversion that is working well he has been infection free. Im sorry you are dealing with this and I hope you feel alot better once the stent comes out!! Big hugs to you too!! :)
