Calculus in left mid ureter
I had a severe pain in lower left abdomen radiating towards groin. On USG, a 5.9 mm calculus is seen in the left mid ureter (approx L5-S1 Level). Mild hydronphrosis is seen in the left kidney. The left upper ureter is dilated. I was advised urgent ureteroscopy by urologist but i started home remedies. I got USG done again after 10 days. The Report mentions that a 5.9 mm sized calculus is seen in the left lower ureter just below the level of iliac vessels crossing causing mild left hydronephrosis and proximal hydroureter. I prefer medication, if possible, instead of ureteroscopy for the treatment.
