Is ureteroscopy a painful thing to go through. I have a 2mm kidney stone. Its in my left kidney. Its moved a lot its lower down my back.
This treatment for many stones involves using a small scope to look into the ureter (kidney tube). The stone can be either removed or broken up with a laser.
After surgery there may or may not be a stent. This is a thin, soft plastic tube to keep the ureter from closing. Either way, you can expect some burning with peeing, urgency/frequency to peeing, mild pain in the side or blood in the urine. ...Read more

Lithotripsy is an option, but work with your urologist to see which approach would have the highest rate of success with the smallest degree of invasiveness. Good luck to you both. ...Read more
Have 4mm kidney stone in mid pole of left kidney. Have a long flight, India to USA in 2days. Doctor says 4 mm is nothing to worry about. What you think?
Hopefully fine: There is always a small chance that the stone could begin to move into the ureter (kidney tube) but this is not likely. You may want to consider treatment of the stone electively before another long trip or important event so that chance of an event is eliminated. Would talk to your urologist. ...Read more
Kidney stone: Most kidney stones that are 4 mm or smaller can be passed spontaneously. Stones that are bigger than 4 mm are more difficult to be passed spontaneously. There is a progressive decrease in the spontaneous passage rate, which is unlikely with stones ≥10 mm in diameter. With a stone diameter between 4 and 6 mm, about 50 percent required intervention. Drink lots of water and discuss with ur urologist. ...Read more
Depends: 4.5 mm stone is at the upper limits of what may be passable through the ureter and into bladder. Usually < 5mm.

Don't worry: Cysts in the liver as long as proven to be just cysts are inconsequential. Your kidneys are fine except for the calculus. Ask for proper diet, and if needed a medicine to help dissolve it and other risks in its formation such as high uric acid or gout. Otherwise things look fine. ...Read more
I have a 5.5 mm stone in my left kidney. There was blood detected in my urine test. What are my options and medications suggested?
I have few calculi in upper and mild calyx largest measuring 5mm at right kidney. Calculus measuring 4mm in left kidney. Along with left minimal hydroureteronephrosis with dilated entire left uretre.
Your calculi seem not large enough for lithotripsy. These may pass on their own. The passage may be facilitated by placing a stent. It would be prudent to consult a urologist for proper treatment. Left untreated, even stones, this small, can damage the kidney.
Drink enough water every day so that your urine is mostly colorless. ...Read more

Kidney stone.: Kidney stones up to 5mm in size will predictably pass on their own. Just drink plenty of water so you produce a lot of urine, dilate those ureters and allow the stone to pass. It may hurt while it's on its way out, but it'll pass. Bigger stones will likely get stuck and will cause tremendous pain and will have to be removed by lithotripsy or cystoscopy. ...Read more

Plenty fluids and. .: Drink plenty of fluids, about 2 to 3 liters per day so you produce a lot of urine. You also can benefit from limiting your protein in the diet (meats and animal products).
