What to do if I have an kidney stone & a double-j stent. directly after peeing, the kidney hurts some. is it stone or stent?

Here is ...: This phenomenon usually results from the presence of stent, which induces a jeking-effect to kidney while its lower end may touch the bladder neck & sequentially transmit such irritation at the end of each urination.
