Request a lithotripsy.  I've been dealing with stones since i was ten.  All they did was medicate me with meds but the problem kept continuing.  All the docs refused to do a lithotripsy because the stones weren't big enought.  I finally found  a doc who took me seriously.  She scheduled a lithotripsy of both kidneys where they shock the stones into sand.  If you already have a stone in the uretur you'll have to pass it. but the stones in your kidneys can be shocked.  I've been kidney stone free for a while now.  She also diagnosed the reason behind why my body is producing them. Parathyroid which also causes depression, mood swings, kidney stones, calcium overproduction, etc.  Think about it. good luck
