Hi there!

While some amount of pain/ discomfort and blood in urine may be normal following a stent insertion/ removal; if excessive and not improving over the weeks, it may need a review with the treating urologist to rule out injuries/ trauma, infections, excessive inflammation and for appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
