Ureteroscopy = a procedure where they insert a scope through your urethra (penis), through your bladder, and up into your ureter, where they can gain access to the kidney-stone.

They'll either blast it into smaller fragments with a laser, or break it up with a tiny pneumatic 'jack hammer' and pull the fragments out one at a time with a basket retrieval device.

A 10mm stone is fairly large, so a laser-cystoscopy/ureteroscopy  is a good option. It's not painull at all, and you'll be back on your feet within a few hours.

REALLY... it's an easy procedure, as there is no cutting involved (they're simply inserting a scope into you). Don't worry my friend. I've had MANY, MANY of these procedures done over the years and I'm walking proof that a) they work, and b) they're easy to endure.

Do not worry. You'll be fine.

Good luck to you Brother.
