i went to the urologist and he did an ultrasound and told me i have a 2mm kidney stone on my right side. he didn’t say if it was in my kidney or in the urethra tube. he didn’t give me anything to take.. or say he wanted to do any testing to figure out ehat kind of stone it could be. is this normal? should i go get another opinion? i have had about 4 or 5 kidney stones before. i think the biggest was 4mm. each time ive had one i would wake up with pain and need to go to the er where they would give me medication. i have stopped drinking the iced tea which is what i think caused them but am not sure since ive never had them tested and only seen one of them. the one i had prior to this was in april of 2016. i stopped drinking the tea after that, so im not sure where this one came from and it’s making me nervous im only 20 and have been getting them since 2012. i have bad anxiety/panic attacks and am so scared of needing to have surgery or go back to the hospital. sorry if this is too much information it would be nice to talk to someone who could offer some advice. is it possible to dissolve it? if i drink enough water will i be able to stay out of the er? will it get bigger? i know you might not have a diagnosis just looking for anything to help ease my mind a bit.
