Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.You must be sure to know the size and number of stones along with the locations,they are present.Must get CT abdomen or IVP done to know that.Stones smaller in size below 5 mm can pass of their own but bigger stones will require either ESWL or PCNL.You must consult a urologist for the proper treatment protocol.Thanks and good luck.
