Patient :I will be having a kidney stone surgery follow up in 2 days. However the stent has been horrible! I hurt just moving. Urination is absolutely painful. I thought I had begun my monthly yesterday, but the flow isn't right for that. I am suffering pain on my right flank and lower front right abdomen. The pain has been present all day but fluctuates in intensity. Should I suffer through the next 48 hours or should I go to the hospital now? There is no fever, nausea, or vomiting.
