stone passes from the kidney to urine via a tight tube known as ureter....your stone has stucked in the three critical narrow portion of your ureter and causing back pressure of urine causing your kidney to enlarge known as hydronephrosis.......get an IVU..... AND IT CAN BE CURED THEN but dont waste time as hydronephrosis can cause permanent kidney damage
