hi there,

this means stones are still there and they are ostructing the urine flow. you may need a surgical removal if they do not come out by themselves. generally small stones upto 5 mm can come out by themselves. you can watch for a week if there is no pain or fever at present.

Thanks for the query
Looks like you are having recurrent stones which are blocking the ureter and causing the findings of dilation of the pelvicalyceal system. You can drink plenty of water to flush out the stones.
You also need to see a urologist for more definitive management of the stones.
Also if you are suffering from recurrent stones special blood and urine tests may be done which will determine if you have any underlying predisposing condition causing recurrent stones.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
