Hello. Welcome to hcm.
Stent will be put if there is urine collection causing hydronephrosis which causes kidney to swell. The stone would have removed by now but as kidney takes time to heal,stent has been left so that all fluid comes out. Pain will be there till stent is removed and some days later. It is due to stretch effect.
I advice you to wait till stent is removed. Complete the course of antibiotics given with pain killers. Only pain killers will help. Drink lots of water and avoid meat.
All the best

Urologist Dr. Saurabh Pandya's  Response
hi munch, i assume stent was put to decrease the infection/swelling in your kidney because of the stone. i need to know the exact diagnosis. probably once your kidney gets better, some definitive treatment for your stone will be planned. one end of stent is in kidney and one end in bladder, so when you urinate, you will feel heaviness on that flank. you may also get some burning or frequent urge to pass urine. this is usually due to stent. some analgesics will help. take lots of fluids. ask your doctor what is her further plan. usually stents are removed after a month or once the stone has been taken care of. take care.
