Hi dear ,thanks for your question on HCM,your having bilateral renal calculi ( stone) and you want to know how to get ride of these stone,Dear your stone are of such small size, that if you will keep your self hydrated with plenty of water they can pass without any intervention,but since stone on left side has produced dilation of posterior calyx ,it need an intervention,,the easy and safe way is go for extra corporeal shock wave lithotripsy,( ESWL
)it will be definately availabe in your city, ESWL is the least invasive of the commonplace modalities for definitive stone treatment, but provides a lower stone-free rate than other more invasive treatment methods, like No 1 as ureteroscopic manipulation with laser lithotripsy and No 2 percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). The passage of stone fragments may take a few days or a week and may cause mild pain. Patients are instructed to drink as much water as practical during this time. Patients are also advised to void through a stone screen in order to capture stone fragments for analysisit, will crush your stone without any surgery and crushed stone will pass through urine

Dear Mohammed Ali,

Having kidney stone warrants you to undergo few more tests to find out what kind of stones they are and can calcium excess or excess calcium loss is the reason or the stones are made up of totally different materials out of abnormal metabolism. The statement you mentioned tells that the stones are obstructing normal urine flow from your kidneys to the urinary bladder. And hence the way upwards is getting distended in your kidneys, which is left untreated for a long time, can result in kidney damage. there are many centres in india who treat the renal stones with noninvasive therapies (E.g Lithotripsy)which depend on what kind of stones they are or what kind of chemical have made the stones. Show youself to a Urologist and get evaluated for possible abnormal metabolic reasons to get the stone and for further course of treatment. All the very best. Do not delay seeing a doctor.
