Had KUB xray today and found out the stone had been successfully shattered in my Lithotripsy 10 days ago. I've passed tiny fragments and a powdery substance and Dr. expects I may pass more of that same stuff. Thankfully, I've had no pain whatsoever and have "strained" very little, so was surprised to hear the news. I did find out that it had a calcium oxalate core with a uric acid coating, which is why it didn't show up on the first xray. (Apparently uric acid only shows up on certain imaging) My intense fear has subsided and New Years dietary resolutions have begun.
