Thanks for your query.You are known pt to have recurrence of urinary stones Now you have a 1.5 cm size stone in lower end of ureter.You need to undergo an endoscopic procedure of Ureterorenoscopy and fragment the stone so as to decompress the ureter and kidney.If neglected this will damage your kidney.So do not worry and go ahead for the procedure as suggested by your doctor.
