Here is some...: Anatomical configuration of renal pelvis and the size of stone decide the varying pattern of stone-related symptoms ranging from no symptom to excruciating unbearable pain depending on the degree of blockage from acting as a ball valve. So, consult urologist for individual, situational stone-related symptoms and management.

What did your urolog: Urologist say , I have never heard of a stone that large, you should only be getting advise and treatment for that from your urologist- no one else.
