Brief Answer:
It's difficult to comment.

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

There's no fixed way to calculate, time taken for a particular stone size.
A 5mm stone is a small sized one,hence could've developed in a short time.

It's really difficult to comment on the time frame for stone formation.
A stone metabolic testing,can give a clue,about chance for stone recurrence.

Hope your doubts are cleared.
