In June 2011 I went to my family dr with kidney area pain. I was sent for an xray. It showed a small kidney stone wasn't told how big. I was sent to my uroglist. He said he didn't think that it was the stone causing my problems but would recheck in 6months. In Dec 2011 I went back for my recheck but he didn't check on the stone he just followed up on another issue. I figured as long as it doesn't bother me it is ok. Then in July 2012 I had some severe stomach pain not related to the stone but was told the stone was 4mm. Again the DRs didn't seem concerned but it concerns me because of a past kidney stone a few years back. I had a 4mm stone that got stuck in the tubes and caused an infection. I spent 3 days in the hospital and finally another urogolist removed it. I just don't want this stone to cause that kind of problem again. Any advice on how to get rid of this stone or if it is okay to stay. It has aleady been in there over a year and a halfnow and hasn't gone anywhere.
I do have pain from time to time in the kidney area but it usually goes away with time.
