What To Expect After Kidney Stone Removal
Where & how: If the stone was in the ureter & removed through the urethra you will have discomfort for a day or 2 in the urine channel. The pain in the flank would be gone.

Here's some: The need for stent or catheter is to secure urine drainage and concern about possible blockage by stone or clot, which is decided by the surgeon's judgement. Most of times stent or catheter is needed for days or weeks, depending on if you need the second entry to complete the works for all stone-related procedures. Ask Doc for individual details timely.
Two ways: If the stent is left with a long "string" if intended to be short term, this can be grasped and pulled out easily. If there is no visible string, an office procedure to retrieve it with a flexible fiberoptic scope (cystoscopy) is a rapid and relatively painless method to remove the stent.See 1 more doctor answer

Kidney stones: Treatment options for calcium oxylate stones are dictated by the size, location and density of the stone. Eswl (shock wave lithotripsy) is often effective for small to moderate size stones in the kidney or upper ureter. Large stones in the kidney may require pcnl (keyhole surgery with scope through the back). Stones in the lower ureter often require ureteroscopic extraction.See 1 more doctor answer
Ureteral stone: The size of the stone does not correlate well to the intensity of the pain. The nearly unbearable pain of "ureteral colic" is from spasm of the muscular ureter. Although 50% probability to pass on its own within a few days, a 5-6mm stone sometimes will get stuck and fail to progress. Usually after 5 days, I recommend having the stone extracted with a ureteroscope as an outpatient.See 2 more doctor answers

Prevention: Preventing stones is the obvious answer. But if you have a stone it should be treated if it is unable to pass. If you have had previous stones and know your stone- type such as uric acid, this can be treated medically and may be dissolvable. Most calcium based stones however are not dissolvable and must be removed or passed. A urologist can guide you with these decisions.See 3 more doctor answers
It depends: To make a generalization, it depends primarily on the size of the stone as well as the location. Anatomic factors may also play a role. Most stone procedures are not complicated; some may be if stones are large and/or multiple, infection is present, etc.
