I am getting severe pain with stones in kidney. Did scanning and it seems to be the problem with small stones. After medication pain goes. However pain comes once in a while and i need to take medicine to get rid of the pain. Is there any permanent cure for stone's in kidney.

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
