Hi there,
My son is now 15, when he was 13 they discovered a 6mm kidney stone in his right kidney. We saw a urologist who ordered the renal scan to see if there was a UPJ. The renal scan came back that everything was fine, so we scheduled to have a lithotripsy done to shrink the stone. Six months later we do an ultra sound and now there is a 10mm kidney stone. The urologist then schedules a laser litho going through the kidney. While he is doing this procedure he does see a UPJ so we schedule to have the surgery to remove the UPJ. In the meantime my son would have a neph tube to help the kidney drain. Surgery was done in April we have a follow up the end of this month with the urologist. He recently had a CT scan done for something totally unrelated and the right kidney is still showing moderate hydronephrosis, will the kidney heal itself or will he always have this?
Thank you so much,
Concerned mom

Welcome to Healing Well. So sorry to hear of your son's condition. While I do suffer from kidney stones I don't have any advice on his current kidney issues.

someone should be along with more information though.

Take care,
