Growing Number of Patients Report Delayed Pain After Stent Removal

Urologists know patients often complain about the incredible discomfort caused by ureteral stent placement. But what about delayed pain after removal?

Several members of our patient community have reported experiencing some pain, up to one week after stent removal. A study by USC Urology found moderate morbidity associated with removal, and researchers concluded that this phenomenon “appears to be underappreciated by physicians”*. While some delayed pain is normal, it may help to inform patients about the warning signs that should prompt a visit to the ER!
