Hi. My husband has been dealing with multiple stones in each kidney for over two months. He's been in and out of the ER and hospitalized a couple of times. Today he went in for a stent removal and ureteroscopy on his right side and lithotripsy on left kidney.  The Doctor removed two stones from right ureter and one from his right kidney. Before he could leave the hospital, they wanted him to urinate. Well, I understand about blood being in the urine; however, is it normal to feel like he has to defecate and then pass blood from the rectum? This is what happened before he was able to urinate.
