Kidney stones in the kidney - pain!

Edited , 2 users are following.

Hi all

I had a CT scan and have been told I've got two small stones in my kidneys. Both 4mm on either side. one is upper pole kidney and the other is lower pole kidney.

they have been there for quite some time and the one that is on the left lower pole causes me so much pain, but I have been told it is stuck in a groove! so not likely to pass out of kidney very easily.

I drink 3 litres of water a day and I keep active.

does anyone else have any suggestions please?

    Hi Lizzy,

    Sorry you're going through this. Try drinking water with lemon in it or lemonade. Avoid any caffeine and salt.
