Hi, many thanks for the query!
You need to do- RFT, Urine (R/M).
5.2 mm stone is small enough to pass out with medicines but if it is impacted then needs to be removed by Surgery.
Get an IVU (Intra-Venous Urography) done.
Till then take antispasmodics, pain killers, diuretics with your Urologist'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.

Hi..hardyal.. There are four stages in the hydronephrosis, only for 3 and 4th stage surgery is the treatment of choice.. the 1st and 2nd stage will be managed conservatively.. Also the blood urea, serum creatinine, routine blood test, are assessed after that, they will decide for surgery...

Take care..
