If stones less than 7mm generally pass through spontaneously 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.
