Kidney Stone 6x3 millimeter R proximal ureter.

Natural ways to get rid of it?  If not, can you pass this size?  What treatment options are for this?

Hi, for stones greater than 5mm up to 2cm options like Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) are used to break up the stone. You may be asked to come for repeated sittings till the stone is fragmented. The fragmented particles are then excreted in the urine. Please discuss about this therapeutic option with your doctor. Regards.
