Hematuria: Although blood in the urine is never "normal", there are many possible causes that are relatively benign. Sounds like the lower urinary tract has been adequately evaluated. I would recommend a renal evaluation at this point. A nephrologist would be a good start.

How to remove 9 mm kidney stone?

How to remove 9 mm kidney stone?

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.

What can happen if I don't have a kidney stone removed from ureter?

What can happen if I don't have a kidney stone removed from ureter?

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.
