Chronic flank pain-would ureter stent placement relieve pain? Have tried everything

Do you have kidney. stones or urinary tract infections? A chronic kidney infection can cause flank pain. Do you have pain urinating? Burning? A quick urine analysis can help rule out infections or blood (might be due to stones). Your primary care doc can usually do this test.
Not likely . The stents themselves can be very uncomfortable so unless you need to have the stent to keep the ureter open I doubt it would help with chronic pain. Try a chiropractor, trigger point injections and/or acupuncture. .
