I am 24 year old suffering from kidney stone which obstructed in ureter confirmed by ultrasound exam is of 7-8 mm. Can it be pass without surgery?

I am 24 year old suffering from kidney stone which obstructed in ureter  confirmed by ultrasound exam is of 7-8 mm. Can it be pass without surgery?

Possibly: Stone size is the major determinant of the likelihood of spontaneous stone passage. The location of the stone is also important. With stones larger than 4 mm in diameter, there is a progressive decrease in the spontaneous passage rate, which is unlikely with stones > 10 mm. Proximal ureteral stones are also less likely to pass on their own. ...Read more
