Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Some of the possible treatment for kidney stones are:

1) Pain relief may require narcotic medications.

2)) Lithotripsy. It uses sound waves to break up large stones so they can more easily pass down the ureters.

3) surgery

I suggest to do a physical examination at an urologist for further evaluation and specific treatment.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
