Thanks for writing to us.
You need to get the calculus of the kidney treated first by laser lithotripsy. After stone removal, once the renal functions come back to normal then he can be taken up for the hernia surgery. His age is also a big risk factor for anaesthesia.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
