Urologist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to HCM. As an Urologist,i can understand your anxiety.
Your scan shows stones in both kidneys,with some block of urine flow in R.one.
It's not bad as you think.
Both side stones can be treated by fragmenting the stones,without surgery.
The procedure is called as ESWL.PCNL is another surgical procedure.
ESWL is done with mild sedation and the stone is completely fragmented.
Both sides are cleared of stones and you don't need hospitalization for it.
If you've any doubts,send all the reports to me,as a direct question.
