As you had stone in ureter one month back,at present if you do not have pain it might came out.
so I think consult your urologist before procedure.
Take plenty of water.

Hello
Thanks for query
Stone in the mid ureter can be removed by many methods. one URS,in this uretreoscope is inserted through penis ,urinary bladder & affected ureter ,stone is broken into pieces & it comes out along with urine . Lithotripsy is the another method in which stone is broken in to pieces & itcomes out slowly along with the urine. Open surgery now a days not prefered is the another option. you can choose either of the two lithotripsy or URS.
Hope I have answered your question well to your satisfaction. Wish you speedy complete recovery at the earliest.
