How long should the bladder area be tender after a percutaneous stone removal with a stent in place? I've never been this sore just from the stent.

In brief: From stent

The bladder discomfort is from the stent within the bladder. As long as the stent is present, the discomfort will remain.
Having a percutaneous removal of a kidney stone should will not cause bladder discomfort. Once the stent is removed from the ureter, the bladder discomfort will resolove within a few days.

In brief: ?Till stent removed

Usually stent discomfort is mild, however about 10% have significant discomfort from a jj ureteral stent.
This latest stent may be longer than previous stents, extra length can cause irritation and pain which will last until stent i either changed for a shorter one or just removed.
