In most of the cases, stones in the kidney are too small and tiny that with proper medication, these tiny stones pass through the urine only. This happens in the initial stage. But when you feel the pain while passing fluid, you need to get it operated. However, a surgery is required in very rare cases like when even after the medication; the stones do not clear the path or your urinary system. But when the kidney stones are small, they can give you terrible pain. However, this pain vanishes after taking proper diet and medicines as prescribed.
