Pain in kidney area, bloating, gas, swollen testicle. Stent inserted in aorta artery. Cause?

My husband had a stent inserted in his aorta artery through is groin. After surgery he complained that his catheter was painful. Since that time he has complained of pain in his kidney area as well as extreme bloating and gas. He has since noticed that both testicals are swollen. Just wanted to know what would cause this? Thanks

Hello,
Thanks for writing in.
Pain in kidney area and extreme bloating need not necessarily be related to the catheter but the primary disease of aorta must be given more importance. You have not mentioned the reason for stent placement in aorta in your question.
The problem with swollen testes needs to be solved by consulting a surgeon.
Hope this helps.
