Just completed my 2nd lithotripsy for kidney stones. Had a stent in for about a week and a half after my first one. That was not fun. Also had initial trouble with pain management after the first one. No stent after second one - just took three attempts to hook up IV.
CausesDietary factors that increase the risk of stone formation include low fluid intake, and high dietary intake of animal protein, sodium, refined sugars, fructose and high fructose corn syrup, oxalate, grapefruit juice, apple juice, and cola drinks.
Hope everything wound up OK I can't tell u nothing about Kidney stones since I've never had them myself but hoping & praying u'll be ok.
some foods are very bad like spinach and rhubarb if your stones are principally calcium oxalate. they could be uric acid stones ask them to give you a urine sieve and container so the debris can be analyzed.
A stone chemistry doctor told me to minimize salt. that the more salt in the urine the more calcium in the urine. GP said that was news to him.
Vit C is no good as it will acidify urine. Sodium bicarbonate to alkalinize urine ? However we need more sodium like a hole in the head.
