Hello sir.

A ureterorenoscopy (URS) is a very effective procedure, especially as your stone is of near moderate size. A URS procedure has also shown significanlty good results in lithotripsy (breaking of stones) of stones present in the distal ureter (which is the location of your stone).

I would also like to emphasize on the fact that your doctor has suggested the possibility of an infection of one kidney caused due to the stone; in such a scenario urgent management would be required, which can be provided only by a URS procedure, making it ideal in your case.

Medication may or may not help, and even if they do, it will be time consuming and not provide complete relief. This is why I would also recommend the URS procedure sir.

Hope this information helps you. Wishing you a speedy recovery and a healthy life thereafter.

Take care.
