Welcome to XXXXXXX
Stone more than 8 mm in size in the ureter is usually not passed spontaneously, even with plenty of water and medicines.
It needs to be fragmented by ureteroscopy, which is done under spinal anesthesia and does not take more than an hour.
If not done, there will pain, vomiting, fever, infection, loss of work and potential damage to the kidneys.
so it is wise to get it removed early. Pls consult a nearby urologist.

Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for your reply.
It is VERY RELEVANT QUESTION. I have had a good look at the report the first time itself.
Though 5 mm diameter is smaller than the long dimension 9 mm, medically the longest dimension is considered for CALCULATION .
He will be discharged in 1 to 2 days and can go to work the day after discharge.
If done by an expert, there are no serious side effects, except minor discomfort and minimal blood in urine.
