Urologist 's  Response
hi mr/ms mohanty, you have multiple small kidney stones on both sides, and mild fullness of PCS on right side. It may be a normal finding, it may also be due to small stone on its way out in right kidney tube, or a recent passage of stone from right kidney. If you have no pain, maybe a repeat sonography can be done after 7 days. An Xray kub (morning, fasting stomach) will give exact size of kidney stones and if any stone is stuck in ureter. Usually stones smaller than 6 mm will pass. Take lots of fluids. I suggest you get a stone metabolic workup done to know why you are forming multiple stones. follow up with ur urologist regularly.
