Depends on the stone: If the stone passed and no other stones present, eat healthy food and drink water to prevent new stones. If more stones are present, see a doctor to evaluate your stone formation process to prevent new stone formation. Always drink water rather than soda and eat a healthy diet.

Should be removed: 9mm stone in kidney will not pass on its own. It has already caused hydronephrosis ; will only cause progressive kidney damage. U need to managed by urologist. Treatment will depend upon how narrow the uretero-pelvic junction (kidney exit), could be non-invasive such as shock-wave lithotripsy (eswl) or ureteroscopy ; break up of stone by laser with or without temporary placement of ureteral stent.

? not treated : 9mm stone is too large to pass spontaneously and thus requires intervention either by extracorporeal-shockwave-lithotripsy (ESWL) or ureteroscopically by laser lithotripsy. You also need to know whether obstructing stone was causing hydronephrosis or cause is intrinsic ureteropelvic junction causing urinary stasis which predisposes to stone formation. Good Luck
