  • I had 7 kidney stones in my left kidny(8mm) big and also 6-7 stones in my right kidney(6-7mm) during pregnancy. I had to get a stent put in to help the urine go around the stones and also to help them come down. They never came out so i had to have surgery to get them taken out. but the best way to ease the pain is to massage wherever it hurts. it helped me atleast...hope it does the same for you.

This is my 3rd time having them in the past 2 years...once when I was 36 weeks prego with my dd, then when my dd was around 4 months old, and now...I have Vicodin that I am taking, and Im drinking lots of water and CB juice...I was just wondering what else I could do...I would rather being in labor again then to have these darn things...LOL!
