Brief Answer:
ESWL or endoscopic removal

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I am medical doctor, an associate in Department of Surgery, working with an experienced Urologist. I answer on his behalf.

First, I suggest you to get a Ultrasound scan of the abdomen and pelvis to identify the stones and their size.

Smaller stones can of size less than 4 mm would require no treatment. They do pass down in the urine without any medication or treatment.

If the stones are bigger then 5 mm then either ESWL (Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy) or endoscopic removal of the stones is planned.

ESWL is a simple procedure needing no medication or surgery.

Endoscopic removal involves passing a camera wire into the urethra and remove the stone through the same way.

Hope, I answered your query.
