I had a large kidney stone. My Dr. recommended Lithotripsy. He gave me the maxium treatment. I was not diabetic, had normal kidney function and was not anemic before the Lithotripsy.
I never had any pain. The post x-ray showed that the stone was the same size. In the next x-ray nothing could be seen. I have some sharp pains in my flank ocassionally and soreness to the touch.
I am small boned and weigh 130 and am 5ft. 3 in. and am 72 years old with no other illnesses. I am very active.
