Kidney stone in lower pole of 10.5 mm?

Won't Pass: The stone is too big to pass. It may never bother you if it stays in the lower pole. If it moves it will obstruct and will require an intervention. Try and find out why you make stones since uric acid stones can shrink in an alkaline environment. Also, if the stone is calcium decreasing urinary calcium may prevent the stone from enlarging. See a urologist, lithotripsy may be of benefit. ...Read more

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.

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
