Urologist 's  Response
Hi
The stone blocking the kidney on right needs to removed either by surgery or by shock wave lithoripsy (ESWL).

Occasionally if the stone is very small it can be given some time for it to pass by itself.The type of treatment depends on a number of factors to be taken in to account by the treating urologist.

Hence please have a full discussion with the urologist treating you.
