Get a urinalysis with microscopic exam and a urine culture (be sure you are not on antibiotics when the urine is collected). Get a CT of the abdomen and pelvis without contrast to accurately define the stone and with contrast to look for a tumor. ...Read more

You should ask your doctor if there were some red blood cells and protein also in urine. If there is then may need more investigation. My feeling is that every thing is ok since repeat urine analysis was ok. ...Read more
