I had a kidney stone stuck in my ureter for 5 weeks before they decided to do surgery. They did it because my kidney swelled up and I couldn't urinate. I had it out ureteroscopy. Five days later I had the stent out. That night I ended up in the emergency room with severe pain, and unable to urinate. They took what they could for a urine sample and found out I had an infection. They prescribed antibiotics and now it has been two days. I'm now experience severe flank pain again along with urinating pieces of blood clot and I have to urinate every few minutes. I also have pain in my urethra. I'm not sure if this is normal or what's going on as this is my first procedure for a stone. The others I have had were in my other kidney and I passed them within days.
