In brief: Anesthesia

You will not be feeling it.
That's why there are drugs and anesthesiologists.

In brief: Here are some ...

Most patients tolerate the clinical conditions after ureteral stent insertion after realizing, understanding, and accepting the reality of stent placement.
If necessary, pain medications may help and ease stent-related discomforts. But, such expected, tolerable discomforts are still much better open surgery, which is extremely rarely needed. So, ask & work closely with Urologist timely. .
