Ask Doc...: Inserting stent is an essential part of managing renal/ureteral stones for most of cases. But it comes with a price of local irritation and suffering, and occasional symptomatic uti, which can usually be managed and soothed with proper use of medications, while the endoscopic procedures have averted patients to undergo open surgery. For individual details, ask attending doc timely.
