    6mm stone in it possible to pass??

    Female age 42.
    Went to E.R. yesterday for nausea & constant pain.
    They did a CT and told me I have a 6mm stone in my right ureter...i feel no real pain there. But, I did over a month ago on Jan 20th went i was bent over in pain and throwing up at the same time!....It was over in like 20 minutes.
    Ever since then I've had the full bladder feeling all the time, and slight nausea....just feel sick...not myself.
    Long story short, I left there, cause they wanted to do a litho??-something, and told me they'd have to put in a stent afterwards??
    Well, I was petrified, and went home.
    They gave me flomax to relax the muscle of the ureters??

    I'm scared. I recently lost my husband, and am alone. I cried at the E.R. more cause of not having him by my side, than the news they told me.

    My question, can a 6mm stone be passed?
    And is it too long by now that it's been stuck there?
    I'm drinking so much water, and lemonade!

    Thank you all so much ahead of time for any info.

    I've been told that you can pass a 5 mm or smaller stone. A Lithotripsy isn't that bad. I was put to sleep and before I knew it, it was over with. You shouldn't have to continue to feel bad like that. I'm sorry about your husband. You can pm me if you want and good luck with whatever you decide to do.
