Re: Need help with my first kidney stone
I have had alot of kidney stones. I always alternate drinking cranberry juice (plain not cocktail with all the sugar) and Simply Lemonade. I would stay away from the lemonade with all the sugar in it. My brother in law drinks beer for them. It runs through your system fast like water and he says thats the best thing to drink when you have them. You can drink any of these and hold it in as long as you can.Until you feel like you are going to burst pretty much. This helps the stone to float up and move through the tube faster.
I would also ask about flomax. It helps open the tube so that the stone can pass. Most urologists give that for stones anyways.
I have had several stones removed both by basket and having them broken up and it is not bad at all. I think if a stint is needed is when it becomes pain so maybe you will pass it or you wont need a stint.
