Hi,thanks for query.After any surgical procedure especially in diabetics this is not uncommon.Presence of foreign body like stent could also be the reason.In case where there is some stagnation of urine because of stone it can lead to fever also.So there is no need to worry,keep regular follow up and she will be fine.bye.
