The last option which is the oldest of the 4 is open surgery. The doctor will cut you open and remove the kidney stone. To make sure that all the kidney stones are collected during the operation, you may first be injected with a solution consisting of calcium chloride, cyroprecipitate, thrombin and indigo carmine so it will be easy to remove using the forceps.
Even if surgery is successful, kidney stones can once again appear in the body. To prevent this from happening, you should now take preventive measures.
The simplest way is to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day which is about 3 liters as this will make your urine look clear instead of yellow.
Some dietary changes may also be recommended. You don’t have to stop eating certain foods but simply limit your consumption on items like apples, black pepper, chocolate, coffee, cheese, grapes, ice cream, oranges, tomatoes and yogurt.
The same goes for fish, meat or poultry products because it helps increase your uric acid. Since kidney failure has been associated with alcohol consumption, you should also cut this down as well.
You can treat kidney stones the hard way or the easy way and you don’t get to decide how this will be done. Sadly, we only learn our lesson when it is too late so you should be thankful if you don’t have to go under the knife.
