I am having 5mm calculus in my right kidney in the mid pole.
I want to know is it possible to get it out by surgarrey?
or what are such ways to make it pass through?

thx Dr

Hi, if it is giving you trouble; one might think of getting it passed through otherwise it will come down on its own later some time. Other way out is lithotripsy. For more information visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithotripsy

For the time being just have plenty of fluids, beer and antibiotic like ciprofloxacin along with pain killers like diclofenac will be sufficient.
