wow! I am not encouraged by this... my 10 year old is having her 2nd 5mm stone out next week. The weird thing is, 6 months ago when they took out the first one, the second one was not even there! How can such big stones come so quick??
She initally had the nephrosis, but within 24 hours the stone dropped and then wore a hole in the ureter. The doc went in and took out the stone, and put a stent in for 1 month. She had the stent out, and recovered fine. ( Up until she took her pyridium, went to school and vomited it on the nurses' office floor..it took off the varnish and stained the floor permenantly orange!)
Now she is having pain again, and has the 2nd stone. So we are getting it out next week.
