hi and welcome to health care magic!!
well usually a stone of size 9mm is treated medically using syrups to dissolve it and let it pass in the urine without any intervention and if they are not responding then lithotripsy can be used. i would suggest you consulted a physician or a nephrologist who would decide on the treatment option most suitable.
take care.
