Sorry to hear about your fella. From what I understand, 2.5mm is still relatively small although it would be agony to have to pass it, I am sure. Hopefully he will be treated to break it up for an easier, more painless outcome.
For what it is worth, my wife had a 25mm kidney stone. Yes! I said 25mm, or about an inch! It had blocked the kidney completely and caused septis. They had to put drain in to an external bag until she was stronger, then blasted the stone with a laser I believe. Worrying time!

I hope he feels better soon. Are the stones being removed or is he waiting for them naturally to pass

had quite a few over the years the biggest about 4 or 5mm i caught in a tea strainer,

actually peeing it out was quite painless it`s when they leave the kidney to the bladder that`s excruciating pain,

if the pain was a 10 toothache would be a 5,

have kept them in a jar,

anyone for a macro photo?

Sorry to hear this @isabel1066 . It must be a worry. Very surprised they didnt tell him what they will do about it tho.
Maybe a trip to your Doc to ask the question. Good luck to your fella Smiley Happy
