How can kidney stones be prevented?

Darling husband was diagnosed with kidney stones that led to him being hospitalized for 4 days due to debilitating pain. The blood and debris caused by the blockage made it impossible for the urologist to see the stones. He inserted a stent to drain the kidney and the procedure will be repeated later this week. Hopefully this next procedure will be successful, if not, what other procedures can be done? What can be done to prevent kidney stones from forming?

Kidney stones can be prevented by increasing water intake. Drinking a lot of water helps to prevent kidney stones by causing one to urinate more often, this urine is dilute hence little possibilities of kidney stones forming. A change in diet can also help, depending on the type of kidney stone he is suffering from.

something that works great for kidney stones is to either drink a glass of cranberry juice daily or purchase cranberry vitamins at your local grocery store. they work miracles at keeping kidney stones at bay

Well if the stones reach his bladder
The doc will give him a chalky nasty
Drink that will help break down the stones so they will be tiny enuff
For him to pass himself- ;-(- yes
Through his urethra - ;-(
Very painful ...... Very very painful
The closest a man will come
To child birth :-(

Drink lots of water. They can break the stone up with shock waves if they know where it is.
