Perhaps: One of the treatments for kidney stones involves increasing the flow through the kidneys, and water may help some, but an IV of saline (salt water) increases it much more. Drinking salt water is not usually well tolerated, but large volumes of oral or IV fluids that contain various salts and water may help if the stone is not attached or stuck in the ureter. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It may, but the idea: Is to pass more fluids through kidneys to wash particles away. This may be achieved by just drinking excess of 2-3 liters (quarts) a day. Barley, causes diuresis (like beer) hence the reputation. But citrated fluids e.g. Limeade, crystal lite, fresca, add citrate to urine which prevents particle aggregation making stones.

If your kidney function was normal before the procedure, you have acute kidney disease which needs to be evaluated. If the urologist finds nothing wrong, go to a nephrologist to see if you have some kidney disease not related to your kidney stone or stent placement. See these doctors quickly. ...Read more
Ureteral stone: The size of the stone does not correlate well to the intensity of the pain. The nearly unbearable pain of "ureteral colic" is from spasm of the muscular ureter. Although likely to pass on its own within a few days, a 2-3mm stone sometimes will get stuck and fail to progress. Usually after 5 days, i recommend having the stone extracted with a ureteroscope as an outpatient. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Of course not: It tastes good, though. There are several sites promoting it as a 'miracle food' that are so silly that i think they must have been written as parodies or practical jokes.
