19mm kidney stone

mindav posted:
I have had terrible pain since Thursday last week in my back and side. I knew it was my kidney. The E.R. I went to released me with just a pain shot after taking urine and said I wasn't passing a stone. I currently am on a chemo type treatment and have been for almost 6 months, so my liver specialist sent me to have a cat scan done and they found a 19 mm kidney stone in my left kidney. I have had kidney stones before. Had 5 clustered together 8 years ago and they used the lithotripsy surgery for them and it worked. I have been reading about the size of this stone and am waiting now to get into a urologist. What do you think the best solution to this stone would be?
