    I had a procedure done several years ago when my doctor diagnosed me with having several kidney stones.

    It was an outpatient procedure & completely painless. They used some type of ultrasound machine to "blast" the kidney stones into pieces that were then small enough for me to pass.

    I was given a small strainer to use every time I urinated for the next week & was to examine the strainer afterwards, looking for any "blasted" pieces. I found many! I then collected them into a vial as directed & gave it to my doctor who sent them (the pieces of kidney stones) for an analysis.

    That was it! I’ve never had another day of pain:)

    I believe that you mean a lithotripsy. They will put you asleep for this procedure. An ultrasound is painless and just used to diagnose a kidney stone, but not to cure it.

    Kidney stones are usually about the size of a grain of sand, but very painful….
