A 45-year-old member asked:

Is there a way to help pass kidney stones, without lithotripsy or surgery?

See a Urologist: If the stones are small (usually 5 mm or less) they may pass on their own. Larger stones usually can't pass on their own and need lithotripsy or surgery to break them up. Consult a urologist for the proper treatments.
