Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
ther eare variety of methods by which you can get rid of this stone. Lithotripsy in which stone is broken in to small pieces ,which comes through urine.uretrorenoscopy in which again a small instrument is passed through urethra ,bladder & ureters to break the stone. Than A PCNL in which a small hole is made in back & stone is removed in piecemeal . Open Surgery is the last choice.
Wish you good health
