My husband had an ureteroscopy 6 days ago and is scheduled to get his stent out in three days. He is still having a lot discomfort. Is this normal?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Yes.

Stent induced irritation is very common, as is blood in the urine.
He will be very happy when the stent is pulled (assuming all the stones are gone).
