When I first started, my kidney stone was a 10mm, this is the notes from my urologist before one of my litho treatments. Because of an unknown cause, I keep developing calcium phosphate kidney stones. I am a patient now of a research hospital for finding an answer to what is causing these.
these are stones that I caught in a strainer from one of my lithotripsys that was of a large stone, the stone color will depend on what type of stone you have, the different stones are struvite,calcium phosphate,calcium oxalate, uric acid, and cystine. Through lab work, it can be determined what type of stone you have. From there, they can find out what is causing them.
In my opinion, I do believe that lithotripsy has caused damage to my kidney. I have had 5 of these done and now my left kidney on functions at 34% and my right kidney 66%.
