How likely am I to have a kidney stone?

There isn’t any history of it in my family (not that I know of anyway) but I had a kidney stone about a year and a half ago. I was just wondering once you have one are they done for good or do they keep occurring throughout your life time?

    I’m sorry to tell you this but most people that I know that have had kidney stones tend to get them again. I’ve had 4 major episodes and a couple of minor ones over the last 20 years, including one last week (I had a 6mm stone). I will say that my family does have a history of kidney stones so I was predisposed to get them.

    If you were given a diet plan to follow it is very important to stick to it. If you were not given a diet (I wasn’t the first time I had stones) then see if you can get one. The basics are drink 4-5 8oz glasses of water daily. Completely avoid foods that are very high in oxalic acids (berries, chocolate, dark green vegetables) and limit foods high in calcium. My urologist said that spinach is the worst thing to eat if you have a history of kidney stones because it is high in both calcium and oxalic acids.
