nephrologist visit

hello everyone hope everyone is doing good. Some of you may remember me Im the 18 yr,.old with kidney stones. I have had them since i was 15 and had 2 surgeries allready.Right now I have multiple and they found that i have high ionizing calcium levels so my urologist is sending me to a nephrologhist because he said he would probably want to put me on a long term medication. He said that they usually dont see people as young as me with as many stones as I produce and they dont know what the long term affects of the medications would be since they usually only put older people on it. I will talk with the nephrologist tommroow and find out what he says and let u know what they put me on if they decide anything would be better than nothing. What medications are some of you on for calcium stones? And have they worked
Thanks lazii...
