In brief: Maybe
Or stone fragment still there.
Can be inflammation from previous stone and the previous procedure. Call his urologist. May need to be seen.

Urology
In brief: Not necessarily
Pain after surgery is very common and sometimes the pain after kidney stone surgery is due to swelling in the ureter, the tube from the kidney to the bladder, or from an indwelling stent.
Serious complications are entirely possible too unfortunately. Any pain that is not controlled by prescription medication by mouth needs an investigation from the surgeon.
