Doctor :   Pain medications are used for symptom relief. When over-the-counter medications are not sufficient for pain control, narcotics may be prescribed
Doctor :   ok
User :   except cidal which was given to me by my doc last week
Doctor :   There are several factors which influence the ability to pass a stone.
Doctor :   These include the size of the person, prior stone passage, prostate enlargement, pregnancy, and the size of the stone.
Doctor :   A 4 mm stone has an 80% chance of passage while a 5 mm stone has a 20% chance. Stones larger than 9 mm-10 mm rarely pass without specific treatment.
Doctor :   For kidney stones that do not pass on their own, a procedure called lithotripsy is often used.
Doctor :   In this procedure, shock waves are used to break up a large stone into smaller pieces that can then pass through the urinary system.
User :   ok
Doctor :   Surgical techniques have also been developed to remove kidney stones when other treatment methods are not effective. T
Doctor :   This may be done through a small incision in the skin (percutaneous nephrolithotomy) or through an instrument known as an ureteroscope passed through the urethra and bladder up into the ureter.
User :   i will try to avoid foods which are porne

Doctor :   Depending on the cause of the kidney stones and an individual's medical history, dietary changes or medications are sometimes recommended to decrease the likelihood of developing further kidney stones.
