Thanks, someone else suggested Activia.

Lactobacillus acidophilus is one of six goodies that's supposed to be in Stoneyfield organic. I'm not partial to yogurts but Stoneyfield is a passable med. My wife bought some today, and after having 4 or 5 tablespoonsfull, she said it tasted so creamy that she took the container out of the fridge and checked to make sure she had bought yogurt.

I decide to keep up with the trend and yesterday, whole day was working on trying to pass a kidney stone, without any pain killers. That was fun let me tell you. NOT. I am still working on that today, but at least I got some good drugs. Doctor told me the pain is comparable to labor pains, oh my.

Drink 3 tablespoons of lemon juice a day, that will dissolve the stones. Shrek and my Dad both had problems with stones, they have cleared up since they started with the lemon juice.

Horrible, Charlie! THE worst pain, ever!

DH was dropped to his knees, emergency room, all that. Sure hope you get rid of it soon!

Had no idea about the lemon juice, PF, thanks!

A couple of years ago we had a news blurb that Mass. Gen. Hosp. had developed a treatment whereby they were able to zap gall and kidney stones into dust with laser. Evidently it wasn't as great as the report made it seem. People are still suffering with these stones. Or MGH is keeping the secret to themselves.

They can do that with Shock waves delivered from outside the body, they are used to break up the stone.

Haven't heard of laser use.

I'm sorry you are going through this Charlie.

My doctor told me to drink weak lemonade every day for mine. He said it acts like Slick-50 and helps keep stones from forming.

The thing is, lemonade/lemon juice work IF you have a certain type of kidney stone (the most common type, I believe), but if yours are caused by something else, lemonade may not work. There are a few different causes of kidney stones--what helps one kind may cause another kind.

My Consultant Darth Vader is going to Laser Zap my stones next month. They give you a general then stick a laser probe up your smekkle and start playing space invaders.
