2 weeks ago I passed a kidney stone and now I am getting sharp pains just at the bottom of my sternum and it hurts to touch. Is this kidney related?

It does not radiate to the midline sternum area (and it does not produce tactile pain). You are describing a medical problem that is not related to your kidney stone history. I am not sure what the reason is for your new condition but please seek attention from your general physician for a physical exam. ...Read more

My wife is diagnosed with kidney stones so after medication milk from breasts is not coming. I have a 4-month-old baby. Please suggest fr breast milk?
Pump or nursing?: Check with the prescribing MD to see if medication can be the cause. At four months many women's breasts reduce in size but still produce adequate milk. PUMPS use vacuum pressure to get milk out and in some it can become less and less effective. The baby nursing works the nipples differently and they can usually work the milk down. Good urine output indicates baby is getting the milk. No? See MD ...Read more

It would be best to see both studies side by side. A full clinical history would also be helpful. I suggest if you are concerned you schedule a consult with a physician. Best wishes. ...Read more
