Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
The best course of action depends on the skill of your urologist. If you want this removed with the least amount of potential procedures, then ureteroscopy would be the best choice. Lithotripsy may be possible, but you still have to pass the fragments on your own and they may get hung up in the ureter and still cause you pain. Therefore, I would recommend ureteroscopy. Hope this helps.
