For at least the last 15 years I have formed kidney stones on a regular basis. 6 years ago I had 16 kidney stones in one month. They had to put a stint into my ureters and into my bladder because I was forming them so fast. I've had surgery once because I couldn't pass the stones one on each side about the size of a small marble. I have two stones again, and I'm in so much pain right now I want to scream!
I've seen a urologist the same one for years now, and he never seems compassionate about this. I am really frustrated. If anyone has ever had a stone you'll know what I mean. They can be so tiny and cause so much pain, and they are not smooth like you would think, they have like little burrs on them, that rip and tear each time they move down the ureter.
And because of all this I can no longer empty my bladder completely, so periodically I have to self cath, something I loathe to do. Embarrassing to say the least, :( I can't help crying :( I'm so bummed right now... sorry for rambling..I'm just really down in the dumps today,and these kidney stones I have now don't help either.
I did catch one in a strainer they gave me, after testing they said it was a calcium oxalate stone. But no answers on how to stop my body from producing these painful stones. Please help, any advice will be greatly appreciated.
