I was told by my doctor after lithotripsy to, twice a day, lie on my side opposite the affected kidney (the one with the stone in it) and have someone pound me for a while on that site to break things up. They pound just hard enough to be uncomfortable, not hard enough to cause bruising or extra pain. It seems to help move things along. Now I have done it a few times when the pain has been bad in my back as the gravel is moving through following the lithotripsy. I'm thinking it simulates walking, which is also said to be a good thing to do, by jogging the stone out of being stuck. Any thoughts?
