    I am not sure on the size but I had a pretty big one before and they did the lipotripsy (sp?) on me to break it up so I could pass it. I am so sorry you are going through this. I know how painful those kidney stones can be.

    Galatians 6:2 - Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

    Hebrews 13:2 - Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

    Proverbs 4:23 - Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life

      Whoa... Thats a pretty big stone.. The biggest one I have ever had was a 4..
      And I passed it.. Thought I was dying.. I would think if yours is a 7 they will do that laser surgery on you to break it up... Any I would hope they do that.. If they tell you they are just going to wait and let you try to pass it, I would tell them no... Because a stone that big would hurt way to bad.........
