Hello XXXXXX
Thanks for writing to HCM

I have gone through your findings in detail.

There is small left renal calculus and it measures 4 mm in mid pole.
But,there is another calculus in left upper ureter measuring 10 mm and it is causing symptoms.It need immediate removal.
Now a days, best treatment for removal of calculus is Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL).It is the most common type of lithotripsy.
After the procedure,tiny pieces of calculus will pass out of your body through urine.
It is very safe process and takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

You should go for it.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.
