- 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.

What are some side effects of a ureteral stent?
Intermountain Healthcare answeredA ureteral stent typically causes two other symptoms:
What causes urethritis?
Urethritis, or inflammation of the urethra, has a few causes. The most common cause is a sexually transmitted infection. The infections that most commonly cause urethritis are gonorrhea, chlamydia, and herpes virus. Other causes of inflammation include contraceptive jelly, cream, or foam; spermicide used in condoms; and chemical irritation from soaps or lotions.

What is ischemic nephropathy?
Johns Hopkins Medicine answered
Ischemic, which comes from the Greek word ischemia, means restriction of blood supply. Nephropathy is damage to the kidneys. Thus, ischemic nephropathy is dysfunction of the kidneys due to compromised blood flow in the arteries.
