Non-obstructing calculus in the mid portion of kidney. Stent placed. Need a permanent solution

I am a 29 y/o female- average weight. I was in the ER yesterday for the 5th time in 6 months with kidney stone issues. This impression shows a 7 mm nonobstructing calculus in the mid portion of the right kidney. No hydronephrosis. This has been an ongoing problem for the past 6 months - never had previous problems. I was recently in the hospital for the same thing and had to have a stint inserted which I was instructed to pull out on my own 3 days after being released. I have no idea what is causing this and what I can do to prevent them. This has been a nightmare and cannot seem to get any answers

Hi, many thanks for the query!
For prevention of recurrent stones, you need to do- Metabolic workup of your 24 hrs urine sample, also do Sr. PTH, Sr. Uric acid & Sr. Calcium.
According to reports, appropriate diet instructions can be given, some drugs can be started for prevention of recurrence.
Drink plenty of water so that at least 2 litres of urine is voided in 24 hrs.
Take antispasmodics, pain killers, diuretics with your doctor's opinion.
Wish you a good health.
Take care.
