In brief: Kidney Stones

I presume that you passed your kidney stone.
What is more important is to find out why you are forming kidney stones. Please have your primary care physician to refer you to a nephrologist who is a kidney stone expert. Kidney stone work-up usually involves having 24 hr urine collections to see why you are forming stones.
