Male/42/w/30yrs multiple renal stones(calcium oxalate)why do my recent nonobstructing stones cause hydronephrosis/10outof10 pain/hematuria& no uti?

Oxalate stones: Are often the result of crohn's disease related to the lack of absorption of bile salts in the diseased ileum. You shouldn't have hydronephrosis if there is no obstruction but certainly they can cause lots of pain and hematuria. Hope you are improving.
