I have had issues with kidney stones for 30 years and now I have one that is 7 mm and unable to pass. I was wondering if there’s any way a stone can be dissolved. Otherwise I’ll have to have it surgically removed.

      Yes water with lemon and lots of it at least 3 L a day! The more you flush with water the less likely they will grow in size!

      Also I had a urine study done to determine what type of stones I had been producing. So it now tells me what foods to stay away from. I’m very helpful!

      I drink water with lemon. Now do you drink the pure cranberry juice because that’s what they say to drink and I can’t get that down. I have been suffering with an infection and stones since March and was in the hospital. I’m seeing a urologist in May finally!

      If you’re in pain of any kind see a Dr. Definitely and other symptoms. It took X-ray to see where my stone was and it was the size of the tip my pinky. So they did a lithotripsy to dissolve it. It worked. I drink cranberry juice as well not the sugary kind! One from health food store. 🙌

        @Kert I drink cranberry juice on a not so frequent basis because I’m on blood thinners and cranberry juice will mess me up. My urologist just told me to drink a lot of water but eventually I’m gonna have to have it zapped. Thanks for the reply 👍
