Thanks for the query,
The recurrence of a kidney stone can be attributed to poor water intake and kidney function. The presents 7-8 mm stone can again be tried with lithotripsy to be broken and pass it out naturally but in case it doesn't then you may have to undergo a surgical procedure for removal.
