Renal Stone Treatment
Mostly, kidney stones will be so small in size that they can be passed out in the urine. However, if you are experiencing severe pain, your might be administered painkillers. The general physician might prescribe painkillers, anti-emetics or both, which you can take at home.
Treating large kidney stones
If a kidney stone is so large that it cannot be passed naturally i.e. if the stone is 6-7mm in diameter or even larger, you may have to resort to other treatment options which could include:
- Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL).
- Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL).
- Open surgery
