Help... I think stones are still in kidney but causing pain

About a year and half ago I had two stones blasted and removed at two different times. Both were 6mm. At the time I had 5 more stones all at least 6mm +. Now I've been having pain in my side that comes and goes, is pretty unpleasant, but not unbearable like the ones that had dropped in my ureter before. Is it possible it's still in my kidney causing pain. What is the best way to deal with it?

    Depending on exactly where the stones are and how big they are I think it may be possible to blast them again but I am really not sure.

    I have a stone which Urologist said was about 3 cm.

    They are going to surgically remove it at some point this year.

    Your best bet is to go back to a Urologist.

    Good luck with it all.

    Take care and keep in touch
