Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Stones in the urinary tract up to 7 mm can pass spontaneously. Alpha one blockers and K citrate are advised for expulsion. Larger stones may require invasive procedures like ureteral removal of stone, lithotripsy or PCN based on the size and location.


Wishing you best of health

Thanks
