Question: I have undergone a surgery (URSL) last week for kidney stone removal which was there in right uterus. A stent is placed and will be removed after 10 days more as suggested by Doctor.

From today, I observed I am passing urine in dark yellow. Till yesterday It was fine.

I changed the tablet 3 days ago. Is that the reason or could be any other thing?

I took Zostum-O 200mg (twice a day)earlier and changed now to Niftran 100mg (Once a day) before 3 days.

Brief Answer:
Not to worry at all

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query
Based on the fact that you have posted the change in colour of your urine to dark yellow is mostly due to medication and urine being concentrated .

As such yellow coloured urine without any symptoms like burning, fever has no significance at all

Continue taking medication and ensure to drink more water to your urine dilute.
