I had a CT for my abdomen ache. A 5 mm calculus was found in the lower pole calyx of my right kidney. The doctor says I should get a lithotripsy done- doing cystoscopy in a few days. I have to travel Europe in few weeks. Second opinion?

See urologist: Your calculi seem not large enough for lithotripsy. These may pass on their own. The passage may be facilitated by placing a stent. It would be prudent to consult a urologist for proper treatment. Left untreated, even stones, this small, can damage the kidney.
Drink enough water every day so that your urine is mostly colorless. ...Read more

I have 7mm stone in my right kidney, just found out yesterday, can the stone stay there for long time without problem?

Location of stone: It depends on how close to the urinary collecting system the stone is. If it causes obstruction of the urinary flow, pain and infection can occur. If it is far from this system it can stay there asymptomatically for years. You should however have a stone workup and determine if you have an underlying cause for stones. You could form more or this one can increase in size and cause a problem. ...Read more

What kind of the diet I have to take for kidney renal stones. I had recognized as 7.6 mm stone at right kidney and 7.2 mm stone at UV junction. Pleas?

Here are some...: Some 75-85% of patients with stones less than 4 mm may pass spontaneously in 2 wks, but not without a price to cope with, i.e., stone passage-related pain and rare infection. For most patients, a 7.2-mm stone would be hard to pass through UVJ although it has made its way down there; so, intervening to remove this stone, usually with laser, is justified after proper realistic preop-counseling. ...Read more
