sure you need to see your familiy physician. Fever could be a sign of infection. The anti biotic given you is prophylactic, if yu still develop fever, its worthwhile doing a culture and antibiotic sensitivity tests to ensure what we treating really works. The fever could also be due to something else, woprth checking with your family doc. It common to have changes in urination frequencies wkith removal of the stent.
