Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have a kidney stone in my right kidney and I have abdominal pain. Is there any medicine to clear out the stone or is the operation the only way? Please help me.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I need to know the full details of your kidney stone like stone size, location, etc., to advise the treatment. So, please send full detail and the test report of your kidney stone disease.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

I am attaching my NCCT of KUB test reports for further details. Please go through it and suggest me.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your report (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

The CT scan - computerized tomography shows a large 0.47 inch mid-ureteric stone, causing severe obstruction. So, I would suggest you to undergo ureteroscopic stone removal at the earliest. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and follow the prescription. It is a simple procedure with no major risks involved. You can come home in a single day and start your routine activities.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
