See your urologist: If a stone hasn't passed after 10 days, it's time to get help. Not sure why you're swelling all over but this is a concern.

Risk of obstruction: Nausea may indicate your kidney function is becoming impaired from dehydration and possibly obstruction. Infection and fever due the obstructing stone is a risk. The edema is not likely related unless the kidney function is severely impaired. Get to medical attention asap.
