In brief: Expulsive therapy

Stones larger than 5 mm are hard to pass, but your stone has already moved almost into bladder without major kidney blockage.
Since it's been 12 days, see a urologist for possible per cutaneous removal, but medical treatment with an alpha blocker might help it pass into bladder without surgery.
