In brief: Kidney stone

Your chances of making another stone are greater then someone who has never had a stone but it is by no means assured.
See your urologist and review xrays to see if any other stones are already present in the kidneys. If not, ask for specific prevention measures to adopt. Start by drinking enough liquid to make 2 liters of urine per day. Dietary restrictions are based on stone composition.
