Brief Answer:
Drink plenty of fluids.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, i can understand your concern.

It's normal for small stones to flush out after treatment.

But all the stones seen in your scan before treatment,should have flushed out.
So it's advisable,to have one more scan done,to confirm that all the stones are out.

Continue to drink about twelve to fifteen glasses fluids daily.
Avoid drinking milk and regular intake of dairy products,as they're calcium rich.
Wish you well.
