Stones in ureter during pregnancy

Q: I am 5 months pregnant and have had continuous pain on the right side (above the right hip) for the last fortnight. Though no infection was detected in the urine culture, the ultrasound showed a 4 mm stone in the ureter. Doctor says no medicine can be taken and drinking water is the only option I have. How serious is it and what precautions can be taken?

A:Normally 4 mm stones will pass out. Five months is a safer time to have pain killers. Take tablet Buscopan or capsule Proxyvon sos (at the time of pain). Of course plenty of water i.e. one glass every 1-1 1/2 hrs is alright. You can add citrosoda sachet to water and take it 2-3 times a day 2 hours after meals. Keep checking for UTI and stop worrying. When you get an ultrasound for the foetus, check the kidney also.
