Kidney Stones - Procedure After Effects

My mum (65) had stones removed from kidney &  ureter via laser shock treatment. That was 2 weeks ago. She has since been extremely lethargic and listless. Is this normal? We had assumed that because it was laser and not an operation she would recover almost immediately. Please advise.

Hi Shaz
Even though it is a laser procedure it can cause bleeding and infection as side effects, so maybe you should let your doctor just do a follow up examination to see if everything is ok?
