lithotripsy

Q | what follow up will i need?

A | Your progress will be monitored throughout the lithotripsy treatment to see if fragmentation and stone clearance has occurred.

X-ray pictures and ultrasound scans will enable your specialist to decide on your continuing management depending on if the lithotripsy is working.

If a stone fragment is passed, this can be sent off for analysis and will give useful information on how to advise you on dietary changes, etc. that may prevent you forming further stones in the future.
