A ureteral stent typically causes two other symptoms:
- Feeling like you have to "go" all the time. The end of the stent sits near the opening of the bladder, and it stimulates the area that tells your brain you have to urinate. The result is that even when your bladder is empty, it may still feel full.
- Blood in your urine. Expect to see blood in your urine until the stent is removed. This can come and go -- some days the urine will be clear, and the next day it will be bloody.
