In kidney shows hydronephrosis means due to stone in the ureter urine flow block lead to urine accumulated in the kidney calyx lead to swelling called hydronephrosis.

Your report suggests that bilateral stones with left stone in the ureter and right stone in the right kidney with left hydronephrosis. So you may consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

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