Kidney stones
My wife is 31 wks. She started having problems with her kidneys at 26 wks. They inserted a JJ stent for a weekend and after an hour after removal she was back in hospital for another stent insertion. To cut along story short, she's on her 3rd stent, had stones in the kidneys (did not analyse the stone to verify composition), 3 courses of antibiotics, 5 litres of water a day, but still no relief. Her urine is bloody and slimy every morning with the pain just getting worst.

2 months ago she started on a stronger calcium/magnesium pill, CalMag+. Could this have any relation to the forming of stones, as I read somewhere the stent in itself could cause calsium deposits above the norm.

Is there any natural remedies that she can take to aid the kidney and bladder for the next 7 wks (due 20th dec)?

please assist.

This is really a problem which urologists deal with. You will have to be guided by them.
