Medical Malpractice/Kidney Stone

As a kidney stone expert, let me add to the previous answer.  In general, we like to consider doing a surgery for a stone in the ureter that has not passed in 4-6 weeks since it tends to cause more side effects and complications if left in place longer.  While a 24 hour (not 48) urine collection test is reasonable to identify kidney stone promoting chemical risk factors to help prevent future stones, it should ONLY be done in patients interested and willing to follow treatment suggestions long term for stone prevention.  It certainly should not be used as prerequisite for a visit in a patient who is clearly symptomatic from an existing stone and I would suggest you consider finding another urologist.
