Paul, welcome to Healing Well! I'm sorry that you are battling stones. Thirty plus years ago I started a three year bout of kidney stones. At that time the doctors could not understand why a 20 something female was getting all those stones. In those days the correlation between kidney stones and Crohn's was not as well known - besides I had been diagnosed with a "spastic colon."
Do you know what type of stones you have? Mine were calcium oxalate. I was advised to eat a low calcium diet which seemed to help but probably contributed to my osteoporosis now since I followed that diet for 30 years. Now people with calcium oxalate stones are often told to eat a low oxalate diet.
I think you need to see a urologist if you haven't already. They can make sure that there is no damage being done and test your kidney function.
You have my sympathy - passing stones was much, much more painful than giving birth naturally [that's right NO meds of any kind.]
