Staghorn kidney stone removal?

Nephrolithotomy

Kidney
While smaller kidneys stones can often be passed, Staghorn stones often form in the calyces or conduit between the kidney and the ureters. These are considered complicated stones and often will require percutaneous (through the skin) nephrolithotomy by a urologist

Dr. Simon Kimm answered:

Had PCNL a month ago for staghorn kidney stone, all stones removed now passing small red "stones" unlike any I've passed before, are they stones?

Possibly.

Open-uri20120914-24568-zodmfe
After a major kidney procedure such as a PCNL for such a large stone. Stone fragments, sediment, and blood clots may pass for weeks. This should clear with time, but if you are concerned you could strain your urine (urinary stone strainers exist), and collect some of the debris. This can be examined by the physician in a followup visit.

Drink plenty of water. Catch the stone when you can and get it analyzed. Let us know if its calcium oxalate or some other forms of stone. Depending on the stone type, lemonade maybe beneficial. A blood test is advised.
