Hi, I have just come out of hospital after having two uric acid stones removed and a stent fitted as there is a third one in the kidney still., i am drinking loads of fluids, but i am wondering how long could it take to pass. I have had a session of lithotripsy to try soften the stone, and i am having the stent out in 6 days time, so i guess my real question is do i have a hope of passing it myself, or will they have to recover it like the other two. Thanking you in advance.
