Dear A, it must be remembered that your friend had a stent put in because
of blood in his urine. The stent was most probably inserted into the ureter to
assist drainage of urine into the bladder. The doctor cannot do a biopsy
immediately as he/she has to wait for the stent to settle - it is normal to also
have blood in the urine following insertion of a stent – so the doctor has to wait
for some healing to take place before doing any other procedure. (MCH).
