In brief: Cystine stones

Cystine stones result from a rare genetic disorder that causes Amino Acid cystine to leak through the kidneys and into the urine to form crystals.
Alkalinizing urine helps increase cystine solubility. You may want to take sodium bicarbonate tablets for this purpose. Keep yourself well hydrated and take pain/antionflmatory meds as needed. Talk to a urologist to see if the procedure can help you.

In brief: Cystine stones

Cystine stones and cystinuria is a rare autosomal recessive disease.
Stone formation occurs because cystine is not very soluble in urine. Pain is related to stones or crystals or both. Diet must be low protein and high in fruit and vegetable. You require 3-4 Liters of fluid per day, bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) and citrate supplements and close follow up. Meds that dissolve cystine crystals work but have hazards.
