See a urologist!: If you are having symptoms from a kidney stone and it needs to be removed there are several options including extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, percutaneous lithotripsy, as well as surgical removal. Stones in the ureter that do not pass can be removed with ureteroscopic stone removal techniques using a scope via the bladder. You need consultation with a urologist.
