Elevated creatinine levels, hydronephrosis. Stent placed. Suffer from flank pain. Need immediate care?

I am a 56-year-old male (5'11", 175lbs). I had a 10mm kidney stone removed 1 year ago, and three months ago had elevated creatinine and hydronephrosis seen on the side where the stone was taken out last year. Two weeks ago I had a stent put in to drain the enlarged kidney. I bled for 5 days, but no longer have blood in my urine. I do, however, have considerable (say 6 out of 10) flank pain that pain killers don't seem to touch, but antispasmodics do. Any thoughts about whether I need a trip to the ER? Do I need to have a KUB image done to see if the stent is seated properly, for instance? Ot will this pain just pass?

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Hydronepharosis with raised serum creatinine level is an indication of disorder in kidney.
Once again K U B image is very important.
Get in blood for urea, uric acid, serum cretinine, sugar, lipid profiles.
Urine analysis will assess infection in kidney.
Once again consult doctor ( treating) and get his opinion regarding this.
Hope I have answered your question.
If further any question I will help.
Get well soon.
