What are the options to remove a kidney stone if it is as big as a crab apple?

Multiple

Kidney_stone
If a large stone is in the kidney, the Urologist may recommend a Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PNL) where the stone is blasted with an energy device that is inserted through a small incision in the flank. Some stones 2,.5cm or less would respond the shock wave therapy. Also, a ureteroscopy could be performed, with the understanding that the patient may need additional procedures to be stone free

Can cranberry juice irritate my gastritis I have kidney stones they told me to drink this to help with the stone??

Absolutely!

Kidney
There may be many stomach irritants: citrus, tomato, peppermint, spices, chocolate, Splenda, etc. You have a double-whammy because you need to acidify your urine (hopefully a recommendation based on analysis of a stone your submitted!). If this is the case, find other compounds that may help your kidney stone condition. If you haven't caught a stone for analysis, then don't just go on a whim!

Dr. David B. Fink answered:

I have a stuck 3X7mm kidney stone in lower ureter(minimal/rare pain). Urine flows through. Can drinking lemon juice break up stone over time?

Depends on the stone

Urine
Depending on the chemical composition of the stone (such as calcium oxalate), lemon juice might help slightly, but probably not enough to dissolve the stone. If the stone is made of uric acid, lemon juice won't help. You may need lithotripsy (shock waves) or a cystoscopy to manually remove the stone if it doesn't eventually pass. If the stone is blocking the ureter, it could damage the kidney.

What are good treatments for immediate kidney stone pain relief?

Drink beer

Pain_relief
I have recommended this to my patients at times and they have gotten relief and seen earlier passage the the stone. It initially increases the urine flow and may move the stone faster and clear it. But if you do not keep hydrating , you will get dehydrated and it is not useful for longer lasting renal colic.

Dr. Raj P. Singh answered:

What are good foods to eat or drink to make kidney stone smaller?

Plenty of water

Increase in water intake to have a urine output of more than 2.5 Liter is the only proven way of reducing risk of kidney stones. It is less likely for a established stone to become smaller over time, however modification in diet and risk factors can be helpful depending on the composition of stone.

My CT scan shows oval shaped 10.9 mm vs 4.5 mm kidney stone in the upper ureter, with a good orientation. What chances of passing?

Kidney stone passage

Computed_tomography
Kidney stones that are 8mm or larger and are in the ureter close to the kidney only pass 1 out 3 times. 2 out 3 fail to pass without intervention. There are medications that can increase the odds of successfully passing a kidney stone, but only with the help of a physician can you know if this is the best course of action.
