Anyone have kidney stones? I have a 3mm one in my kidney and a 3mm one in my left ureter/bladder junction. The only pain I have is bladder pressure and pain. I am still working and everything. It's so annoying.

I have had several kidney stones. sjogren's syndrome has caused me to develop renal tubular acidosis which causes kidney stones.

I had kidneys in both kidneys in the past. They required three surgeries. The pain is awful! I would drink more water. use heat when possible and hopefully they will pass soon!*hugs* I had a stone stuck in my ureter which required surgery. I had lithotripsy to break up the stones and a third surgery to get a stone fragment out of my right kidney.

What I found even worse was the stents they put in after surgery. I would Gaitan blood with the stents and have horrible cramping. I'm sorry you went through 3 surgeries so close together!*hugs*

It could be the stones irritating it. I know for UTIs drinking cranberry juice helps me.

Cranberry can promote stones actually.

Yes. Chronic. Stonebreaker seems to work on some of my stones.

c_nena70

What is stone breaker?

lishajulien
Answered 6 months ago    reply

It's Chanca Piedra. All natural. You can buy it in capsule or liquid form and it's call Stonebreaker. I've done both forms. The liquid eliminated a 4 by 7 stone. It was painless. The repeat CT showed it GONE. Urologist was amazed.

lisha i bought some today at the Health food store. I started taking it. How long did it take?

My bottle of Stonebreaker was only $11.00 at Central Market. Most health food stores will have it.

Three doses and it was gone. No pain. It did move my guts a bit though. A good detox I guess.

The liquid tasted like celery and alchohol. I followed it with a can of V8 and that helped the taste.

c_nena70
Answered 6 months ago    reply

I took two doses so far.

c_nena70
Answered 6 months ago    reply

It's pill form.

lishajulien
Answered 6 months ago    reply

Good deal. I hope it works for you. I've had success with it twice. Once I had to do lithrotripsy because there was just no relief and it moved fast and there was too much pain. The two stones that just moved and then stopped for a while gave me time to treat with Stonebreaker.

I have DRTA and that means I am prone to get stones. I've read this goes along with Sjogren's.

c_nena70
Answered 6 months ago    reply

Do you think the liquid works better?

lishajulien
Answered 6 months ago    reply

It did for me. The taste is horrible though. My stones are 4-7 mm

c_nena70
Answered 6 months ago    reply

I may go to Whole Foods tomorrow and see if they have the liquid. So done with this!!

I can't have that since one is low almost in my bladder

Answered 6 months ago    reply

That's where my last one was stuck and I just had to wait it out. They finally gave me flomax once i was able to keep pills down and within hours it dropped into my bladder thankfully.

I've had lithrotripsy. It was not bad at all. I had a uteroscopy with stents placed and that was very painful until the doc removed the stents.

c_nena70
Answered 6 months ago    reply

Why would they do something to cause more pain? How long did you have to have the stents?

c_nena70
Answered 6 months ago    reply

I can't have lithotripsy since it's near my bladder now.
