welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
Ultrasound measurement of stones is not the best method.
If you are worried, it is better to get a CT SCAN done to check the location of the stones.
If it is confirmed as kidney stones, the sizes you have mentioned, then plenty of oral fluids is sufficient enough.
It is better ti take reduced red meat and alcohol if you happen to do so.
wishing you good health

Thanks for your query.You have silent stones in both the kidneys and you are taking medicine for the same.Please note that there is no medicine on the earth that can dissolve the stone.The only way the stone can get disappear is either it will naturally pass out through normal urinary passage or they have to be tackled by endoscopic procedure which depends upon the location and size of the stone If it is in kidney it can be treated either by Lithotripsy (ESWL) or by Endoscopic procedure PCNL
