Foamy or bubbly urine is usually a sign of some protein in urine or a change in the PH of your urine (the vinegar and lemon juice). If your pain has decreased, it is likely you have passed the stone. 6 mm is at upper end of size that you may pass on own, have your urologist recheck an X-ray to see if stone still present. If it persists, there are ways for MDs to remove the stone.
