I've had 3 CT scans in a month for kidney stones, ureter strictures and hydronephrosis. Is this too much radiation?

In brief: Too much...

Concerning too much radiation is a real thing and can be minimized if a good history and adequate physical exam are adequately done; in real life, such ideal care has not been done by many licensed professionals.
Why? The high demand of political correctness and commercialism has overtaken the doctrine of medicine and been becoming a high price we have to pay in modern age of life.
