Dear Sir,
Thanks for sharing your concern with us.

The mild fullness of the upper one third ureter is suggestive of partial block somewhere in the ureter. The most common cause of it at your age is going to be stone in the ureter.

You should get yourself further investigated with NCCT KUB (Non contrast enhanced Ct scan of the kidney-ureter-bladder reion) and see a urologist. Most of the patients with ureteric stones can be managed with medications. Post NCCT KUB you should start yourself on medications under the guidance of urologist. The treatment shall include alpha blockers and calcium channel blockers besides analgesics,
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Sincerely

Dear Sir,


Thanks for the follow up.

The above mentioned drugs are good. It is very difficult to predict whether the stone will dissolve or not. And if yes, in how many days. So you need to also start yourself on the medications that I have suggested, under the guidance of a urologist.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can help you further.

Sincerely

sir, i. am 39 years male , I was suffering from left ureteric colic for over last 4 years. after ultrasound scan and IVP it was diagnosed as Ureterocele with multiple UV Junction calculi with hydroureter & hydronephrosis. Last month I have been operated with medial incision on ureterocele. The stones have been removed & pcs & left kidney is decompressed properly after that. I have been adviced MCU after 2 months for VU reflux & proposed a ureteral reconstruction surgery. Can you advise me what the best kind of modalities are available to reduce the risk of surgery & post - operative complications, and stay in hospital. Please explain me the prognosis.
Thank you !
