How long do kidney stones take to pass?

In brief: Quite Variable

Several factors, primarily stone size and patient anatomy, determine how long a stone will take to pass.
Larger stones generally take longer to get to the bladder. Stones larger than ~5mm are at higher risk of getting stuck in the ureter and requiring intervention to extract. Scar (stricture) in the ureter also decreases the chance a stone will pass. Good luck.
