Kidney stent pain

My mother has a stent in her kidney due to a cancer tumor. She has had it changed periodically for two years now. She did too much bending and now is in pain. The urologist said it's normal as she did too much. This was two weeks ago and now she is unable to sit, stand or turn without pain. Should I be more concerned?

Lisa,

It is possible that over-activity has aggravated your mother's condition, either from the stent or completely unrelated and she hurt or strained other back muscles.  Rarely, the stent can migrate out of place and cause pain.  A simple x-ray of the abdomen would confirm that the stent is in the correct position and then there is little to worry about regarding the stent.
