I'm 16 I passed my first kidney stone in October. It was excruciatingly painful but at the time I didn't know it was a stone until I found blood in in urine and went to the doctor. Then again in December I passed another one and was hospitalized for 6 days, and in February I passed another one. I've had brief pains in between but not as severe and lasting only about 10 min. I haven't passed once since Febuary is there any way to know when I will pass another one so I can...prepare? The 3 I passed were each about 2 months apart but now as of March the ultrasound showed that there were no stones but my left kidney is covered in like calcium particles like sand they said. Will I always have kidney stones (on both kidneys by the way) or will it eventually stop?
