Brief Answer:
Hydronephrosis is due to obstruction to flow of urine from kidney to Bladde

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query .

Based on the facts and reports that you have posted you have impacted stone of a size of 3.3*4.4 mm at the level of Vesico Ureteric Junction of Left ureter with mild hydroureteronephrosis of left kidney and left upper ureter .

This is due to obstruction to flow of urine from left kidney down into bladder caused by stone being impacted at UVjunction which is narrow at UVJ..However there is nothing to be worried about it it will get resolved once the stone moves down into bladder .

As regards stone in Rt lower calyx you can expect it to pass down and out through external meatus through urine .

Continue taking Urimax prescribed by your physician .It helps to dilate the ureter and thereby to pass down the stone in bladder which is eventually passed out through Urethra with urine .

Ensure to drink more water to produce more urine

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
