I feel so sorry for my son. We realized he had stones after high school and before college he had surgery because his ureter(sp) was curved so they could not blast it. He, too, had to have a stent. He has had 1 or 2 surgeries going into the back and now has a huge stone that is the size of a peach pit. In Dec. the dr. said to book the surgery because he was already booked until mid Feb so my son decided to do it in early March during his spring break for a week. Do you think he will be able to go back to school with or with out the stent. His doctor said that calcium was ok.He has calcium phosphate and calcium oxidate. High fluid , less salt, avoid hot or ice tea, colas and dark colored drinks he has done. If you have any suggestions, websites, etc. Please let me know. He is only 22 years old. Anyone that wants diet info on high fluid/low oxalate Diet: Low Purine Diet and Low sodium I am happy to type it out.
