Answer

After the patient has recovered from anesthesia and is in suitable condition, the patient may be discharged with instructions to return to the clinic in 14-21 days, when the stent will be removed. The patient is discharged with 3 days of antibiotics (eg, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole [Bactrim], nitrofurantoin, ciprofloxacin [Cipro]) and oral analgesics for potential bouts of discomfort from the stent.
