Hi, many thanks for the query!
Stone in the ureter causes obstruction to urine outflow, so urine accumulates in kidneys causing so called swelling of kidneys i.e. Hydronephrosis, also, proximal to obstruction- Hydroureter.
You need to do certain investigations- USG (Abdo-Pelvis), X-ray KUB,
Sr. creat., Sr. BUN, Sr. Uric acid, Urine (Routine & Microscopy).
For time being, you may take anti-spasmodics, pain killers 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.
