Anybody has experience of passing kidney stones successfully?

    Hi, I've been hoping to find a natural treatment that can help my friend avoid kidney stone surgery.  I've heard of different ways of people passing their kidney stones but wasn't sure which one worked the best.  Any experiences you want to share would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

    I think this is quite a bit different than the possibility of passing a gall stone with a home remedy.  Better do some careful checking on this one.

    Your friend might check with a doctor about getting one dose of a strong narcotic to relax the entire body and see if that would allow the stone to pass.

    He needs to get an X-ray to see how big it is and where it is.

    Unfortunately, one look at the X-ray might obliterate all hopes of a natural remedy...

    The good news is that they will probably be able to blast the stone with ultrasound aka lithotripsy.

    He needs to ask himself why he came here to ask this question when he has an entire hub written on the subject. smile

    Thanks, it's always useful to hear other peoples' experiences.  You can never stop learning in this life.  Anyone else have more experiences.
