If there is any doubt, I would confer with your urologist.  A loose stent can cause some anatomical damage if removed incorrectly, so I would leave the complete removal of the stent to the urologist - especially if you aren't sure how to do it.  

Regarding sex, I cannot comment on this without examination.  I would ask your husband's urologist about this.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.

I just had my ostentatious removed by my urologist yesterday,  I do not recommend doing this yourself because u can cause servitude of pain in ur penis.  It only takes about two minutes and is the worst feeling u have ever felt.. and once the stent is out all 14" of it ur penis will burn and drip out blood for around 30-45 minutes!  But once its out and the pain stops u feel almost "normal" again!  Just think no matter what the pain from the stent is about half of the kidney stone pain!!!!!  I was told to wait. 1-2 weeks before having sex or when the pain null and my urine is clear.  But I couldn't wait and had oral sex with my wife today and wish I did wait.  My *** was so painful and was full of blood and clots and it was like a water hose that wouldn't shut off. 2 gallons later my testicles are sore and the pain wont go away.  Does anyone know how to fix this.. I am still slowly jizzing and the perks 10s are not helping!!!!
