    Trisha, it can help to drink plenty of water with a squeeze of lemon juice. My hubby was in agony with a 6mm stone stuck in his ureter recently and they sent him him hoping he might pass it but, after several weeks, an ultrasound showed that his kidney was becoming inflamed so they operated to remove it. He found Buscopan suppositories were most successful for him in keeping the pain at bay, but drinking plenty of water will help to keep further stones from forming in the future. Good luck!

    It is possible that you may have passed it but it is also possible that it has settled somewhere where it is sitting comfortably, as happened in my husband's case. I do hope it is the former - good luck!

      What you describe is not uncommon. Pain can come and go over a period of weeks and months. As the stone moves it can allow fluid to flow thereby reducing pain temporarily.

      Probability of passing a stone correlates with stone size. A 3mm stone has a 70% chance of passing, a 6mm stone has a 40% chance, and so on. The idea of "flushing" sounds great but is only realistic with smaller stones. There are many well marketed products out there that advertise relief but are useless.
