A stone that size: is unlikely to enter the ureter ..stones of less than a mm (1.5 cm=15 mm!!!!!!!!) are usually passed..... The chances are your stone is "stuck" in the tubular tissue of the kidney. Hope this is helpful Dr Z

You should see a urologist for taking care this stone and get instruction for preventing the next one.
