Hello Irishglock1, If your stone is of the type of cystine kidney stones, eswl will not break the stones. Stones should get broken and passed through urine within few days of eswl. If the stone was larger than 10 mm size, the eswl may not break it. If you need Homoeopathic treatment, get back to me with your detailed history. Dr. C. J. Varghese, Homoeopath, +91 9447019733, drcjvarghese@gmail.com
