Urology/kidney stone


sir i have been diagnosed with right renal calclus noted in mid pole calyx measring 6x5mm.right mild hydrouteronephrosis.(? mid ureteric calculus).my doctor has advised me to take zamocin 200 ,urimax 0.4 ,noculi syp for a week and go for a second scan.I just want to know yor opinion..


The syrup is not used here as it has never been adequately tested for efficacy. The other treatments are reasonable. If no symptoms,we often give stones tome to pass. You may need surgery such as Lithotripsy on the stone in the kidney. Talk to your local urologist.
