Hello, 5mm calculus usually doesnot cause any problem. Surgery is not needed at this stage. But you need to take certain precautions. Drink plenty of water, Avoid/minimize intake of junk foods, meat, cola, excess dairy products. By taking these precautions, you can reduce risk of recurrent stone formations. Wish you good health.
