UTI: Infection in the presence of stones is often difficult to eradicate since the stones may harbor the bacteria where they form a biofilm that inhibits antibiotics from reaching them. He might want to consult with both a urologist and an infectious diseases expert in concert to see if a plan could be coordinated between the two of them. Hope he gets better soon.
