I get one per year....they suck, but only for a day or so, have to go er every time. Good drugs and fluids...once it's out of your tube and in your bladder is when the pain stops...I have had 12 stones...passing them out your junk isn't painful usually.

Had one in my bladder this past summer. I thought I was slowly dying. Worst pain I've ever been though and I typically have a pretty high pain tolerance. Drank lots of water and flushed it a day later. Don't hardly feel it coming out but when that things floating around inside of you it hurts!

People who drink alcohol are less likely to get them is what a doc told me. Cirrhosis of the liver may kill the drinker, but less likely to get stones. They suck. I have been to the ER three times with them. Drink lemonade everyday as preventive maintenance. No kidding

That's what I told the check in lady at the ER in March when she asked me why I thought I was having a heart attack. I told her after the first two I figured out how it felt. 30 seconds later I was in the ER getting taken care of.

If you take a heavy dose of Vitamin D3, stop taking it. It has been linked to kidney stones. My doctor told me to stop taking my supplement and they went away. I don't drink a lot of cokes or tea in general. I drink mostly water and I still got them....3 to be exact.

My doctor recommended cranberry juice but not the sugary cocktail sold by Ocean Spray. He said real cranberry juice with no additive and heavy in acid. It tastes like **** but it broke them up enough to get them passed. After suffering for several weeks, I drank 8 oz of this twice a day and especially right before I went to bed. 2-3 days later it passed. This is what he recommended and it worked for me. He also told me to lay off the D3 and they haven't come back in three years.

I had 5 surgeries in one year for them. Three Lithotrypsies and two where they went in with a scope. Original stone was the diameter of a nickel.
Not fun at all and I still get them on occasion but have been able to pass all of them. Several Urologists told me some people, like myself, just are prone to producing them. Nobody has ever been able to tell me exactly what has caused them or exactly what to stay away from other than dark soda's.
Some people just produce them and have to deal with it. I do try to drink a lot of water to keep my kidneys flushed out. If you get dehydrated you are much more likely to get them.
