Pain in kidney area, constipation. Laser surgery done to remove kidney stone. Normal symptoms?

I had a procedure last week where they went up with a laser and broke up a kidney stone , I just was able to take the stent out after a week. I have felt good for two days but woke up with bad pain in my kidney but I also feel constipated. Is it normal to have pain in my kidney or do you think I am still passing stone fragments?

It is still possible to have stone fragments, retained and being passed out.
Kindly consult if
1. There is fever.
2. Nausea / vomiting
3. Blood in urine.
4. repeated abdominal pain not responding to regular pain killers.

Hope this helps.
