Hi !
Welcome to larger than 7-8mm rarely pass on their own because the ureter diameter is 5mm.A procedure called lithotripsy is often used. In this procedure, shock waves are used to break up a large stone into smaller pieces that can then pass through the urinary system. Only if this fails surgery is done.Stones can recur in the future.To avoid you should stay hydrated so as to flush the kidneys.Three liters of water on a daily basis is the recommended amount for kidney stones prevention and although this may have you running to the toilet every five minutes, it can stop the painful kidney stones from occurring. If you work in a hot environment then you should aim to drink more than this and you should also try and drink a large glass of water just before you go to bed. and also diet restrictions like cut down on the amount of oxalate rich foods that you are consuming and these include spinach, chocolate, beets and also rhubarb.
