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?
Drink lots and lots of fluids. Wash them down. I don't envy you if they both go at the same time.
Any size stone can get stuck in the kidney. I had lithotripsy and can still feel one bouncing around. Hurts like all get 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.
Did you pass this on your own? I have a 5mm stuck at right VUJ.
I just had surgery to remove a 4.6mm stone. It got stuck. Worst pain ever even thought could be felt till it was removed. Normally any stone 5mm or larger are removed surgically.
Until the stone leaves the kidney your ok. Pain starts when it starts to travel to the bladder. They can stay in the kidney for years.
So I have two Kidney stones. A 6mm right lower pole renal calculus and 4-5mm calculus at the right UPJ without hydronephrosis. Can anyone tell what this means and where that is located?
Hello. I have been on Flomax now for five days and nothing yet. Mild pain today. But. Keep looking for it and it's still not gone. Some days are horrible. Mine is only 2mm. I will keep you updated. God bless.
