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.
Spot on Barb.I fired one out some time ago, it was not the kohinor but I was impressed.I took it to the consultant who had it tested.I then had to start 6 month of dietary experiments with Dr Cruella Deville. I was not allowed to eat loads of fruit and veg that I love like spinach,tomatoes green peppers, leeks ect ect ect.I had to increase my fluid intake to 3 litres a day and once a month pee into a container for 24 hrs and then take it to pathology.
The diet and drugs stopped them growing. The laser is next
The reason I am having them zapped is because my travel insurance will not cover them as they are an existing problem and the NHS provides a wonderful service for free.

It did. I was on Perkeset (SP?) and Tramodol, alternatively, every 2 hours, still was in pain.

Final Update

Since we last spoke on this topic, I've had a CAT scan and a cystoscopy and they both say I have nothing to worry about. The CAT scan was easy but the cystoscopy was a revisit of the catheter experience. Not as painful but a solid reminder.

Here's hoping all DC members can enjoy a run of good health for a while.
