Follow up visit: It is common to continue to cough for weeks. I would advise a follow up to include lung function tests and evaluation for reflux. A brief course of steroids can be used to relieve the inflammation.

Endoscopy in ureter: Looking into the urine tube "backwards" from your bladder up towards your kidney (as opposed to "percutaneous nephroureteroscopy" - through your skin into the kidney).
