I have 2 x 5mm kidney stones, one on each side. I was first put on Doxazosin, but that did not pass either of them so my doctor switched me to Flomax. I just took my second dose but I was wondering if anyone knew about how long it will take to pass them? I have only had random pains, nothing severe enough to say it is moving. I also have H. Pylori so nausea is a given. I just have so much going on medically it would be nice to get these out of the way.
How long will it take to pass a 5mm kidney stone with flomax?

4 days on Flomax and still no pain so I am guessing no movement. Can a 5mm stone get stuck in the kidney and never come out?
A time line on how long it will take to pass no one knows. If your not having any pain its more likely its A- its in your bladder now or B-you already pee'd it out without knowing. Once it enters the bladder u will not experience any more pain. But that being said it could sit in the bladder for days or weeks before it passes out. If you havent seen a urologist, I think its something u SHOULD do. If u had 1 stone u are more likely to see others In your near future.. good luck.
