The pain doesn't seem to be like the "colicky" spasm of the kidney stone, but more like some one kicked me in the side. Is it unusal to have this kind of lingering pain post-stent removal?
Unfortunately, the pain will last for a few days after the stent is removed. I was writhing in pain for about a week and a half after they were removed. It hurts a lot, but it does get better. I hope you feel better soon!
