Smaller stones (but >4 mm) in the kidney may need eswl(sound waves) or a direct look through the ureter (ureteroscopy) with laser break up. Often stones can be observed by xray, intervening only when painful. ...Read more
I have several nonobstructing nephrolithiasis, largest is 3.5 mm . Should I worry? How long in furture till they start hurting? I have pain medicine
Needs follow-up: At this point it sounds like the stones are still in the kidney. They should not cause pain unless they start moving down the kidney tube (ureter). Good news is largest stone is 3.5 mm which should be passable. Would see urologist to follow stones and do tests to see why you are forming them ...Read more
I have multiple non-obstructing nephrolithiasis atleast 8 in the right and 5 in the left. Which measures ranging from 1.7mm to 6.8mm, should I worry?
No but: Try not to worry but you should be seen and followed by a urologist and get a stone metabolic workup on blood and urine. The 6.8mm stone will not pass on its own and will give pain in all likelihood unless it is in a certain location...More info needed.

On a recent sonogram, I was diagnoed with mild hydronephrosis and then the next sentence said no hydronephrosis or nephrolithiasis or focal parenchyma?
Ask: Are you sure it was not "mild hydronephrosis"for one side and"no hydronephrosis"for the other?If there is mild hydro then no hydro may be a typographic error. The side with no stones will have no hydro. It is best to check with the doctor who ordered the study who can always call the radiologist who dictated the report and talk to her or him.Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
