Stent was removed in 2005 after a month. I'm now experiencing right flank pain again, and I'm starting to feel tired with activity. Could this be the ureter again and/ or the kidney? Should I consult my doctor right away or just rest, giving it some time to go away?
It seems wise that you consult your doctor. An abdominal ultrasound and blood/urine analyses (urea, creatinin, proteins in urine, urine sedimentâ¦) are necessary diagnostic procedures at this time. You may be experiencing a kidney or ureter stone.
