Not unusual: Tell us more... Did you have pain or blood in the urine? How was the diagnosis and the finding of a 6 mm stone made. It was a small stone. With hydration and time, small stones pass in the urine easily without the patient noticing. The issue now is to know why did this stone form? What type of stone? Keep youself hydrated and follow the advice of your medical team. Thank you for asking.
