Yes: You already have mild enlargement of the kidney - that is what hydronephroiss is. Over a long period of time, a blocking stone can lead to infections and decrease in kidney function. It is best to talk with a good urologist as to what the best plan is for your individual case - whether the stone needs to be removed, or if they are comfortable just following it over time.
