Kidney stones are the most common reason for placing a ureteral stent. Other reasons include stricture (abnormal narrowing of the ureter), and outside forces such as a tumor pushing on the ureter and causing a blockage. You can continue your normal activities with a stent in place. Though there may be some physical discomfort, a stent will not physically limit you.
