I had a 12 by 5 mm ureteric stone which I got removed through RIRS and a stent was placed for 2 weeks..after the stent removal one more stone of 5 mm is observed in the ureter at the same place after 15 days... My kidney is under moderate hydronephrosis.

My doctor told me to wait for a week and if the stone doesn't passes on it's own with flomax, we will need to repeat the procedure.

I just want to know that will my kidney be able to function properly after months of hydronephrosis?
