Urology 35 years experience
Depends on:: The majority of kidney stones are not able to be chemically dissolved in your body. Some can, but most can not. Therefore depending on the size and location of your stones, they may or may not be passable. Sometimes surgical options are best for stones. You are invited to thoroughly discuss your options with your urologist.
