Have pain on right of lower abdomen. Ultrasound shows calculus of 7 mm in calyx. Solution?

Hi, Recently I was having pain in the right side of the lower abdomen for 2-3 days. I consulted a doctor and told him that I had a past history of stone in the ureter , which was treated with shockwave lithotripsy and a double J stent put in for 14 days and then removed 3 years back. The doctor ordered an ultrasound of the pelvis/abdomen. In the USG, the finding was a calculus of 7 mm in the calyx of the right kidney. The report stated a very small. Please tell, what could be the remedies, and if possible if noninvasive measures would be useful in my case. Thanks.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Drink plenty of fluids - enough to ensure large amount of urine output.
Alkalinisation of urine helps
Drugs to reduce uric acid help some

A battery of tests to find a treatable cause is advisable - because of recurrence.
Frequent follow up is necessary - increase of size, infection, obstruction - demand lithotripsy again

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
