User :   My question is, how will I come to know whether this stone is out of my body, & normally how much time does it take for the entire process
Doctor :   What was the procedure done on you?
Doctor :   The way that one can know whether the stone is gone or not is repeat U/S or CT Scan
User :   ok
Doctor :   If the procedure is correct then the stone is removed then it self
