Exclamation Ureteral stents

Is anyone familiar with ureteral stents, and if they have an effect on the bladder and/or urinary system when they are in someone's body for a long time? I had a stent put in in December 2000. I got that one taken out and a new one put in on May 2001. Then I got that one taken out and a new one put in on August 2001. Finally, on September 2001, I was "stentless." The reason why I'm asking about effects, is because I've had to wake up once every night to use the bathroom. Also, when I had the stent in, I was pretty active, and I had a lot of hematuria (blood in the urine). Sometimes even clots of blood. Do you think this did any harm to my body?
