Thanks for posting your query.

I do not see any major reason for worry.

This can be treated without surgery provided

-There is no continuous pain
-The hydronephrosis is not increasing

There are bright chances that this stone should come out without any problem.

Continue medication as advised and wait.The stone normally gets impacted at this place.Still the size of stone is moderate,it should come out.

At times stone it self gets fragmented and comes out.

Do regular follow up with your doctor.

Lets hope for the best.

Wishing you good health.

I started the syrup and tablet since yesterday and following is my current status.

2. I am drinking plenty of water, one glass of Mosambi juice every 3 hours(with sugar added).
3. I am urinating frequently post drinking water every time.
4. I am not having free motions. I went only once from last two days.
5. I am also having gas problem. I feel a pain in the back when I feel having GAS developed in stomach.

Please suggest and advice me.

Good to hear from you again.

All of this are inter-related.This all symptoms are related to stone problem.

Continue same treatment,take light diet and take some rest and you should be fine.

Do not over eat,be light on your stomach.

Do not worry.
