6 doctors agree

In brief: It depends

If you have only had 1 stone, the risk is about 50% if you have had more than one, the risk goes higher.

prevention is the primary goal: keep well hydrated to prevent mineral precipitation into stones; avoid foods that contribute to your type of stones (hopefully your stone's composition was analyzed for this purpose)

In brief: Depends

It depends on the type of stone, your fluid intake, genetics, and your body's tendency to excrete certain compounds.
Since there are so many factors, it is highly variable. The best method of prevention is to increase your daily water intake.
