If stones less than 7mm generally pass through without surgical intervention...Medical treatment of nephrolithiasis involves supportive care and administration of agents, such as the following: Excessive water intake or IV hydration Nonnarcotic analgesics Oral/intravenous narcotic analgesics NSAIDS (eg, ketorolac, ketorolac intranasal, ibuprofen) Antiemetics (eg, metoclopramide) Antibiotics (eg, ampicillin, gentamicin, ticarcillin/clavulanic acid, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, ofloxacin) to reduce possible infections Alkalinizing agents (eg, potassium citrate, sodium bicarbonate): For uric acid and cysteine calculi Alpha blockers (eg, tamsulosin, terazosin) Surgical option Stones that are 7 mm and larger are unlikely to pass spontaneously and require some type of surgical procedure, such as the following: Stent placement Percutaneous nephrostomy Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy Ureteroscopy Percutaneous nephrostolithotomy Open nephrostomy Consult nearest urologist they will help you further
