Having very bad kidney pain. I had a cystoscopy left retrograde. What can I do besides taking percocets. It's hurts so bad?

Yes: Lithotripsy pulverizes a stone but you still have to pass the sand like sediment. Instead of passing a 5mm stone, you are passing very tiny particles. This will cause pain and burning.
