1. you haven't mentioned that whether kidney stones are unilateral or bilateral?
2. pain can be at the side of the kidney stone but also on the other side due to reactionary hyperfunctioning of the healthy kidney.
3. pain at the side of the stomach means that pain is of renal origin,unless proved otherwise.
4. check with your health care provider who will possibly go for Ultrasonography abdomen to see the size and position of stone and if necessary call for a standing X-ray and IVP for any back pressure changes.
5. any associated symptoms along with pain,like nausea,vomiting, blood in urine or burning micturition.
6. kidney stone can simply form due to under hydration to hyper parathyroidism,positive family history.
7. If size comes out to be more than 10mm, Lithotripsy is the treatment of choice.
8. Avoid Vitamin C and calcium containing antacids, avoid purine rich (organic meat,sweet bread, cauliflower), avoid seed containing fruits and vegetables (tomatoes,,brinjal, capsicum,guava, water melon,lady finger)
9. avoid phosphorus rich food (cashew nuts,almonds,cumin-poppy seeds)
10. drink plenty of boiled water and take horse gram every alternate day.

If you have a past history of kidney stones, you could get it again..drink plenty of water, avoid certain foods that are known to contribute to stone formation, avoid drinking hard water. My grandma tells the banana stem is good for disolving them..i donno how true it is..may you can give a try..but first i think you should get a scan done again to see if this pain is again due to the kidney stones..

small sized kidney stones are removed with herbalmedicines but if it has grown too big then different options may have to be tapped. There is a stone which is called as Sang Hizarul yahood it is small peanut sized stone which is made into fine powder in radish and kept in hot furnace to make it brittle. this process is repeated till it becomes very fine powder. Its readymade medicine in name sang yahood bhasam is available in market. This is capable of turning renal stones into sand like particles and expell them from body. You can use the hair of maize boiled in water and water taken after filtering it.

There are possibilities that the pain is due to renal stones again. It is better if you can get it checked by a doctor.
