User :   hello
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   I have stones problem.. I have been diagnosed with multiple calculli in both kidneys recently
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
may I know few details
User :   I got my ultrasound done and this stone was there from last many days..
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
What is the size of it
User :   in left max size is 9mm and 6 mm in right
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
Do you have any problems like pain in the stomach?
Doctor :  
or while urinatiing?
User :   yes i am facing problem while urinating
User :   i got my ultrasound done
User :   and found out that there is a calculli of 8mm size located in left UVJ
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   Currently I am taking the medicines : amifru(40 mg) and norflox 400mg
Doctor :  
Since the calculi pass off on their own if smaller than 5mm , in your case I think you need an intervention by an Urologist
Doctor :  
Amifru increases the urine out put and thus aid in passing of the stone
Doctor :  
Norflox is an antibiotic which helps in preventing infection
Doctor :  
or treating your current infection
User :   what is the possible treatment for my situation?
Doctor :   What is your age?
User :   23 years
Doctor :  
Did you see a Urologist?
User :   there's one family doctor of ours
User :   I have consulted him on the phone
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   haven't seen him yet in person
Doctor :   The stone size is large to be managed with conservative treatment

Doctor :   so a Urologist opinion is all needed fore you
User :   hmm
Doctor :  
More over one has to find the reason for the formation of stones
Doctor :  
Right now what I suggest you is to drink more water
Doctor :  
that is around 3 litres per day
User :   I am drinking this much amount daily for sure, sir
Doctor :   Since the stone is at the junction of ureters and the bladder

Doctor :  
it can be easily removed with Ureteroscopy
User :   okay
User :   is it some kind of operation?
Doctor :  
simple procedure
Doctor :  
which is done in the Operating room
Doctor :  
If the stone size is less than 5 mm one can take a chance to let it pass of on its own
Doctor :  
but it is more than 5 mm
Doctor :  
and easily removable
Doctor :  
with Ureterorenoscopy
User :   okay
Doctor :   flexible ureterorenoscopes have the capability to reach the stone
Doctor :  
and remove it
Doctor :  
Otherwise some laser techniques can be done to split the stone and pass off
Doctor :  
That is the decision of the Urologist to conduct one of these
User :   allright!
Doctor :  
So do not worry
User :   thanks doctor
