How large? <5mm = small, usually just prescribed alpha-blocker + nsaid +/- antibiotics if fever + ct in 3-6 weeks to see if the stone passed, given no hydronephrosis. Or jj-cath/urology magic to make it go away.Yeah, they thought she had a mild UTI and ran the CT as a precaution. Voila, large kidney stone.
Ah, 13 mm. Depends on location. It can sit in the kidney itself with no symptoms. If it moves to the ureteres it’s a different, painful story.
