Off & On Kidney pain

About 5-6 years ago I went through lithotripsy 4 times within 18 months. Since then I've passed smaller stones off and on. I'm worried because every few months or so I have kidney pain that no one seems able to explain. My former doctor, former being the key word, said there was no way and I was lying.

I've had a kidney infection once and a UTI. Anyone have ideas as to why the continuing pain? I'm wondering if they might be sensitive due to the "blasting".
Dang that hurts!
