I have been diagnosed with all these things. I have produced kidney stones chronically for 20 years now. I am 45 years old. I have had hyperparathyroidism and have had both parathyroids on the left side and half my thyroid removed . I have had stents, basket retrieval, lithotrypsy, and several kidney infections that resulted in septicemia. I continue to develop stones and I am often naseaus, vomiting, suffer from renal colic etc. I am soooo tired of all this. The doctors are offering me no help except for drugs for pain management. They say I am not in renal failure and so don't seem to take any of this seriously. I have missed so much work and am getting quite depressed. Anyone out there know anything about these things? Any advice?
