Recently I got to know in an ultrasound test that I am having a gallstone and a kidney stone. But there is mild discomfort in the right side of my back. Kidney stone is 4 mm and gall stone is 9 mm. Is this size a reason to worry and how soon should it be operated? Meanwhile what precautions are to be taken?

4 mm kidney stone probably come out without any operation. U need to take 3 to 4 lit fluid intake and low salt diet.
For fall stone it's needs gall bladder removal if it's causing pain.
