Husband had a Kidney stone removed that was embedded in the

Resolved Question:

Husband had a Kidney stone removed that was embedded in the urether - it was moved and floated to the top of the kidney then retracted and blasted with a laser. Stent was put in and we went home. Stent has been removed - his surgery was 12/27.
He is still experiencing severe pain, severe swollen feet, stomach is hard and extended, did have a fever for a couple of days - now gone and is currently taking antibiotic. He is having mild hallucination, but is also still taking pain meds. Is this all normal or should we call his Dr (who is out of town)?

I would call his doctor or go see a doctor for this. He should not be having the symptoms he is after surgery. He may need imaging tests and blood work to determine what is causing the problems he is having. Is is possible that a part of the symptoms he is experiencing is from the pain meds and/or any anesthesia he may have received. However the pain, swollen feet, and stomach needed to be looked into.

So please see a doctor soon
