You have been referred to the kidney stone service as you have been diagnosed with a stone in your urinary tract following your computerized tomography (CT) scan.
Most patients pass their stone without requiring treatment or intervention. You will need to have another CT scan in four to six weeks’ time to check if the stone has passed, and you will receive this appointment shortly.
In the meantime, you have been referred to our stone multidisciplinary team; when the results of your repeat CT scan are available, a member of the team will get in touch with you by telephone or letter to share the results.
It may take a few weeks for us to get in touch with you, but please be reassured there is an ongoing plan for your care.
If you are unable to pass the stone after four to six weeks, you are likely to need treatment and the stone team will discuss with you. If your symptoms get worse during this time, we recommend you contact your GP or attend your nearest emergency department.
If you have any questions regarding your care, please contact the stone navigator on 020 7794 0500 extension 33122 or the stone nurse on extension 32585.
