ESWL, fluids, etc.: Whatever can dissolve or break down the stone is used to remove it. For example, eawl or extracorporial shock wave lithotripsy use shock waves to break up the stone from outside the body. Meanwhile patients are encouraged to drink plenty of fluids to hopefully pass the stone on the urine. If these and other things fail then surgery might be done, as a last option.

Meanwhile, a smaller stone than 4 mm doesn't mean it will pass and >4 mm up to 10 mm doesn't mean it will never pass. So, historical virification of the side and size of stone passed may be very useful for observation and reassurance. For individual detail, ask Doc timely.See 1 more doctor answer

Bleeding: It should stop within days unless you are taking blood thinning medications or have bleeding abnormality.
Pass or obstruct.: A stone in the ureter may pass or it may obstruct the ureter. The likelihood that a stone will pass decreases significantly the larger it is, especially over 5mm. If the stone fails to pass, obstruction of urine can cause the kidney to swell in a process called hydronephrosis. Over time this can lead to increased risk of infection and kidney atrophy. Work with your urologist for options.See 1 more doctor answer
To see stone easier: It's a good practice to minimize bowel content and eliminate fecal material inside large bowel so the targeted stones could be easier to be seen under fluoroscopy, esp for a marginal sized small stone.

Multiple: If a large stone is in the kidney, the urologist may recommend a percutaneous nephrolithotomy (pnl) where the stone is blasted with an energy device that is inserted through a small incision in the flank. Some stones 2, . 5cm or less would respond the shock wave therapy. Also, a ureteroscopy could be performed, with the understanding that the patient may need additional procedures to be stone free.See 1 more doctor answer
