I has them once. Was told to use a vibrator on my back, or use the handheld shower head so it was beating on my back to help break them up, drink lots of water.

Yes, i’ve had surgery to remove them from both kidneys (12yrs apart) find a way to get to the dr. Most do not dissolve, especially if they’re the most common calcium oxalate stones. Drink 3 liters of water a day, avoid dairy and calcium as well as leafy vegetables. Don't eat with salt. Warm baths can help with pain.

I know 2 people who had it. They needed a minor surgery to have them removed.

Cali^Mom asks My 5 year old keeps putting her hair in her mouth all the time. Any ideas on how to break the habit? She started it last summer and I just put it in a pony or braid every day until she stopped but now she's started it again and her hair is so long the pony or braid reaches to her mouth. I don't have time some mornings for elaborate hair styles. Help!
