Re: Passing kidney stone without pain?
Some small stones do pass without much (or any) pain. All depends on the size of the stone. The ureter (tube that connects the kidney to the bladder) has a diameter of about 3mm, so a stone larger than this could (and probably would) cause some pain while passing through. Best prevention for stones is drink plenty of water and keep one's urine alkaline (pH > 6). Look on the Internet for other prevention methods. Can't make any recommendations on seeing a doctor. It's your husband's call.
