In brief: Congratulation....

Congratulate for having successfully gone through procedures as reported 4 weeks ago.
Lesser dedree of hydronephrosis may be still present if it was prominent resulting from long-term obstruction before procedures. So, ask Doc to elaborate the sequence of events in the imaging studies before & after procedures. At times, a degree of hydronephrosis may persist forever after a reasonable resolution.
