Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have undergone endoscopic procedure of URS+D.J .Stenting to fragment impacted stone in Rt ureter.and now getting discomfort in lower abdomen and back side(Loin)

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Was X-Ray of the abdomen or Ultrasound Scanning done very recently(After surgery)?

The pain and discomfort hat you have could be due one of the following reasons.
1) There are still few fragments of the stone in ureter or

Please consult your Urologist who has performed surgery and get these tests done to confirm the diagnosis and further treatment.

If you have stent in ureter your symptoms will get resolved after removal of stent.
