Yes, you can pass it down. But it will be very painful. You can wait for 1-2 days. Drink plenty of fluids orally and keep yourself hydrated. If not improving after 1-2 days, then consult urologist.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Please hit thanks.


Brief Answer:
No, Flomax will not help you.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Sorry for late reply.
Flomax is having tamsulosin. It is useful in BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy).
It has no role in stone removal.
So this will not help in passing out stone.
The only way to remove the stone is drink plenty of fluids orally and urinate more.
So yes, you should drink plenty of fluids orally. Also take coconut water. You can also take low dose diuretic (lasilactone). This will also fasten urination and helps in stone removal.
Hope I have solved your query. If you are not having further queries then please close the conversation and rate my answer.
