Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das.
Firstly, granular cast may be found in many conditions like in case of urinary tract infection, chronic kidney disease, blood in urine, and others.
As, your renal function test ( Creatinine, BUN,) and liver enzymes are within normal limit, the possibility of a chronic kidney disease is ruled out.
As RBC and Pus cells in urine are within normal limit, the possibility of any infection and blood in urine are ruled out.
So, over all, the finding is due to the previous history of stone.
You do not need to worry.

Urologist Dr. G.Srinivasan's  Response

Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
If the RBC AND WBC in urine is less than 3 to 5, there is nothing to worry. Other parameters do not point to anything in particular.

Once stone is formed, there is always a tendency to form again.

You need check of
1. Urine analysis
2. Ultrasound scan
every 6 months.

Methods to prevent stone formation are
1. Plenty of oral fluids- 3 to 4 liters a day - the secret is to drink before one gets thirsty.
2. Reduced intake of red meat- which is rich in precursor of uric acid that can precipitate to form stones.
3. Reduced intake of alcohol which again is rich in uric acid.

Wishing you good health
