Dx with kidney cancer. Suffer from multiple kidney stones. Currently have ureteral stint. Very painful. Take only Tylenol or Motrin. Scheduled for kidney removal next month. Would welcome any advice.

      I currently have 2 stints in from biopsies on the 11 of August. I have been using AZO seems to help. They come out September 1 can't wait.

      Not a bad surgery The worse pain is when you have to clench your stomach muscles The pain from air in my core because they pump you up to help separate the organs affected me in my shoulders I only missed 2 weeks of work

      I am deeply sorry you are going through this. I see big pharma has taken you under their wing. Stick with Tylenol if you have to use a non steroidal pain medication. Ibuprofen (Motrin) makes your kidney work too hard. Stop smoking. Hey, I was told to do that for 30 years but kidney cancer was the slap in the face I needed. Consult with a nutritionist. The power of food as medicine is incredible. I learned that with animals. Change their diet, change their life. Drink lots of good quality water. Not tap water unless it's filtered. If you are like mom, she says, "but then I will spend my life in the toilet." To which I say, "would you rather spend a lot of time in the toilet or all of it in a coffin." I do not know your background and I hope I have not offended you but there are some truths that need to be said.
