What other symptoms are present? Kidney stones that can not be managed with medication and increased fluid intake may require more invasive treatment especially if there is bleeding, kidney damage or urinary tract infections already . Depending on the size, type, and location, the stone can be removed through nonsurgical procedures such as ureteroscopy or lithotripsy. Ureteroscopy uses a thin telescopic instrument inserted into the urinary tract while lithotripsy uses high-energy shock waves to break up stones. More invasive procedures such as nephrolithotomy or open surgery may sometimes be indicated. It is best that you discuss the result with your attending physician for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
