CT scan showing distal ureteral obstructing stone with perinephric and periureteral stranding. Moderate hydroureteronephrosis. Severe pain

I have been having a lot of pain since Monday where a CT scan showed 2mm left distal ureteral partially ovstructing stone with perinephric and periureteral stranding as well as moderate hydroureteronephrosis. The pain comes and goes and I was told the stone is small and will pass. Is this accurate? If so why hasn t it done so yet?

General Surgeon 's  Response
A 2mm stone does not cause sever pain.Most probably,the size is bigger.
It is blocking the ureter in the lower part and the portion above it is enlarged.
Sometimes,the block will not be relieved and you have to go for a procedure which dissolves the stone.
Get a simple Ultrasound abdomen which clearly mentions the size of the stone and proceed accordingly with the consultation of your Urologist.
Wish you good health
