    I just want to clarify...this is a 2.9 centimeter stone? Not millimeter? Have you seen a doctor about it? If you had a doctor tell you that you have a 2.9 cm stone, I can't even fathom why he/she hasn't set about a course of treatment for you. I am no expert, but I believe a 2.9 cm stone will require an operation. 2.9 mm, on the other hand, is passable on your own by drinking lots of water. Please clarify....

    I just thought of something you may want to ask your doctor about and that is Potassium Citrate.
