Kidney Stone of 4.2mm in middle calyx and 7.1mm in left ureter
hello sir I am male at 28 years of age, I have one calculus in middle calyx measuring 4.2mm & a calculus measuring 7.1mm in middle portion of left ureter above the level of iliac crest. Is it possible that my 7.1mm stone pass by easily..please please help..I dnt want to go under surgery...
I have taken 1/2 of lasilactone 50 along with 1 tablet of drotin-m with urimax-0.2mg for a month.
The normal diameter of the ureters in adults is around 3-4 mm with a few constrictions and hence a calculus of 7.1 mm is more likely to obstruct the urine flow than pass through the urine easily. Though the calyx stone may not be much of an issue the stone in the ureter may need to be removed by surgical/ interventional means.
Hope this information is useful.
