Medullary sponge k: if you truly have been diagnosed with medullary sponge kidney, you're likely to continue making small kidney stones. It may be possible to break up the larger stones with shockwave lithotripsy. See a urologist for the current ureteral colic evaluation. A nephrologist may be helpful in preventing stones and dealing with MSK in the future
