See urologist: If you haven't seen a urologist, please do so. They may be able to get the stone out for you.

Kidney stone: Follow up with urologist or nephrologist, especially if having difficulty urinating or passing blood in urine. If you've had stones before & know their composition, nephrologist can recommend acidifying or alkalizing urine based on type. Drink plenty of water.
