  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

    I understand that you have renal stone and its been painful for you. The ultimate treatment is to get rid of stone. For pain you can take tab cyclopam twice daily after food occasionally.
    You have not mentioned the size of the stones, but yes, if stones are smaller than 5-6mm, they can be passed in most patients, though some patients do experience pain and discomfort when the stones move down the hollow tube called the ureters.
    Stones larger than 10mm will have significant difficulty in spontaneous expulsion, while those between 6-10mm could pass, but would depend on other factors such as any anatomical obstruction, infection, nature of stone.
    Again, if stones are located in the lower pole of kidneys, they are less likely to pass than say, a stone located in the upper pole, and this is due to a combination of factors such as gravity and posture and internal kidney anatomy.
    A stone which has been impacted to the interior of kidneys and the ureters will have more problem in coming out, and if an imaging procedure has detected that the affected kidney is significantly swollen, it is not a great idea to wait too long for it to be spontaneously expelled.
    Hope I have been able to answer your question.
