Hi,

Your mom is having kidney stones nearly about 8-10 mm for this size of stone ESWL can be done,the stones are made into small fragments by this and they are passed into urine,

But she is having multiple stones so other modalities can be considered,

Visit an urologist for an expert opinion and management.
