1 doctor agrees

In brief: Usually, yes, but...

at times the final decision is made during the procedures depending on residual stone load, the complexity of original procedures, professional proficiency, etc.
So. ask your urologist for individual pertinent consideration & possible decision. More? Contact me at www.Healthtap.com/dr-Lin with RQPWJC to log in for appointments.
