Brief Answer:
There are no medicines that can remove 13 mm stone in kidney

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Red the report, it shows fatty liver grade I and 2 calculi in the right kidney of the size of 4 mm and another 13 mm.
Any stone less than 6-7 mm that can pass from the ureter to come down to the urinary bladder usually passes out of the urethra and hence possible that a small stone of 4 mm may pass out.
There are no medicines that can dissolve the stones and hence 13 mm being quite large needs some procedure to remove it.
I am sure your Urologist will guide for the best possible way to remove this large stone.
I hope this answers your query.
