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.
