Non-obstructing calculus in inter-polar region of kidney, peripheral mass on right lobe of liver. What can I expect after EWSL?

i have a 2 mm nonobstructing calculus in the interpolar region of the right kidney . My doctor is planning on removing it. What can i expect from having EWSL done. I also have some swelling going on with my hands and just had a ultrsound done that showed i have a 2.6 x 3.5 cm peripherally mass on the right lobe of my liver .

Hi, many thanks for the query!
Well, a 2 mm calculus in interpolar region of kidney need not be removed surgically, if there is no hydronephrosis/hydroureter.
ESWL would be un-necessary in your case.
You should do- USG KUB, X-ray KUB, RFT, LFT, Urine (R&M).
Take Stone Conservative Treatment including- antispasmodics, pain killers, diuretics, potassium-magnesium citrate, urine alkalinizing agents with your doctor's opinion.
Drink plenty of water so that at least 2 litres of urine is voided in 24 hrs.
Wish you a good health.
Take care.
