Welcome to XXXXXXX
I think the doctor might have advised you to have plenty of fluids when you had stones.
Treatment depends on the type of stone and the severity of your symptoms. Kidney stones that are small usually pass on their own. When the stone passes, the urine should be strained so the stone can be saved and tested.
If the stone is not detected in the present USG, i think it might be small one and had passed in your urine. Presently i don't think you need to worry.
As you had a history of stones, drink plenty of fluids (6 - 8 glasses of water per day) to produce enough urine.
Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
