Hello - I have a 4 mm stone stuck in mid ureter for 10+ weeks. Previously have passed 4 mm stones and smaller.
This time around has been different. Never had the acute sharp pain. Instead it has been a dull pain, mild to moderate. No sign of infection, no sign of urine obstruction, creatinine levels are within range.
My doctor is suggesting ureteroscopy given duration I've had stone. Do I have any urgency to do so or can I continue to wait it out and hope it passes.
What would be the harm of waiting a couple more months if pain is tolerable with little to no meds?
