I had a kidney stone in 2007, woke up in terriable pain, went into Phuket international hospital, told them i needed a shot of Morphine as was in extreme pain, got the shot within 5 minutes,( was than all good LOL)
5 more minutes went an did the scan <( same as a pregnant lady gets) they couldn't see it, Than saw a dr an he said i was lucky and it probably passed on its on as the pain was gone.
Total cost ...1,800 baht in an out in less than 1 hour ( the longest was waiting to pay)

Now I watch the color of my piss and drink plenty of water..
Dear phuketrichard,

Right, it is always boring when we have to wait for the bill payment. I agree that you are lucky that your stone already passed.
The magic number of the stone size is 4 mm which can be spontaneously passed without any pain.

Recommendation
- Drink plenty of water > 2.5 Litres a day

Remember that not all water is not pure H2O,, Eg,, Mineral water, Soda water , Spring water. Only distilled water is pure H2O.
Dear Duncan,

Anything is OK, especially Whisky, I love it! haha

i drink the water from the 20lt bottles.
i thought distilled water was what you put in ur cars battery?
Dear phuketrichard,

Normal natural water is the best. No need for anything special.
PS You are right, Distilled is for the battery or the Labo things

Dear Pommy, You should see a doctor, I'm pretty sure they would have a pill that you could take to cure you of the problem.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Dear phuketrichard,

I am just joking about Whisky because Whisky is my favourite Liquor. lol
In term of the recommendation of water intake.
Anything that not harm your body and 2.5 Litres in total a day is good in kidney stone prevention.

I had lithotripsy treatment from Dr Pommy and his team at the Royal PP Hospital. I was very pleased with everything and warmly recommend them.
As for prevention,in my case I suspect the problem was long term high dose supplements, cranberry and vitamin C in particular.
