Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
I am looking at the causes of blood in urine in this scenario.
The stent placement could have introduced infection or it may because of decompression of distended renal pelvis.
It is better to do urine culture, treat infection if present and then proceed with the surgical procedure.
Hope this helps. Kindly get back for doubts if any.
Wishing you good health
Regards
DR GS

I went through a kidney infection (caused by a blocked kidney stone) and then septic shock. I am recovering nicely at home. I was very lucky. For about 3 weeks now I have some numbness in my left butt check and depending on how I sit my tailbone (coccyx) is sore. i asked the urologist if putting a stent between my kidney and bladder would cause this and he said no. Since I was in bed for quite a few days he said it might be the way I was sleeping. The stent was removed about 2 weeks ago but the numbness remains and also the sore tailbone. I am returning to work after being off work for 8 weeks and would like for this to get better. Any ideas on what would cause this as I can only see my specialist in a few weeks.
