In brief: Not painful

Most organs in our abdomen(Belly) do not have pain nerve endings so they are not painful to touch! As a result neither the insertion(placement) or removal of a Stent in your ureter should cause any significant amount of pain.
The worst that can happen is some slight discomfort. So do not anticipate any problems and wait to worry!. Send me a note after the stent has been removed and let me know.
