I had my kidney stone removed by scope and stent removed 6 days after. Is it normal to still feel pain?

Not Usually. Typically, after a stone is removed the the stent is removed, the pain goes away almost immediately. Sometimes, there is still some swelling in the ureter that could be giving continued pain or even possible a small stone fragment. I would check with your doctor with the pain persisting that long.
