Can be normal: After removing a stent following ureteroscopy, it may feel like a "stone" is still there. This usually resolves within 48 hours and is a result of swelling in the "kidney tube". Use pain relievers as prescribed and it should improve with time. If it doesn't, you are having fevers above 101 f or have nonstop nausea/vomiting, then seek medical attention.
