Recurrence: Please contact your treating physician immediately. Although this is a fast recurrence, the important thing to do is ensure complete treatment. A nephrologist needs to identify the type of stones for you. Underlying disease states causing recurrent stones need to be tested for,and a 24 hour urine collection will be performed. Seek treatment at a tertiary academic medical center if possible.
