In Jan 2008, I had been diagnosed with a couple of kidney stones
. I was having severe abdominal pain, nausea, etc. I went in for a lithotripsy procedure in Feb 08. That didn't work. I didn't pass any stones. In March 2008, I had left nephrolithiasis and lithotripsy again. In March, I had a left ureterscopy with laser infundibulotomy (1cm stone). It seemed to have worked until March 2009. What seemed to be a UTI, turned out to be another couple of stones.
