Irritation is possible after the removal of any medical device from the body. It should be monitored carefully, as prolonged irritation, swelling, or pain in the area where the device was removed could signify complications.

Any time there is an incision in the skin, there is a chance of irritation. The body's natural defensive mechanism is to cause inflammation at the site of the incision to prevent bacteria from entering.

I hope you meant uretal stent removal. It does not cause pain on removal but, there may be slight swelling after removal. As for irritation, it is common for a few days.

After anything is going to be removed from your body there is going to be some sort of irritation that will take time to get better.
