Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Kidney stones, or what is known in the medical world as nephrolithiasis, is a condition when hard material builds up in the kidneys. This material can have various ingredients, ranging from urate crystals, calcium, cystine and so on. This condition is caused by various factors, such as lack of drinking, excess body weight or obesity, consumption of certain drugs, high uric acid levels, eating certain foods such as shellfish, meat and fish, and having had kidney stones before. So that indeed, people who have experienced kidney stones, can experience them again.
In your father's case, when it comes to treating kidney stones, the variation in treatment varies depending on the type of stone, the size and the number of stones themselves. If the stone is indeed small, the urologist may just give you oral medication to remove the stone and ask your father to drink more water. If it cannot be dissolved or it can come out on its own, it can use sound waves, inserting the organs from the genitals that go up to the kidneys, and also in the form of open surgery. It all depends on the type of kidney stone your father has and his response to previous treatment.
However, for complaints of back pain, tightness and weight that does not increase, even though your father has a history of kidney stones and the latest examination also shows kidney stones, another examination must also be done to ensure that the symptoms he is experiencing now are purely due to kidney stones and not because there are other diseases, such as kidney failure, kidney infection, fluid buildup in the lungs, pinched nerves, or certain tumors and cancers. This is important because symptoms of shortness of breath and weight gain difficulty are not common in kidney stone disease, especially if the stones are small as your father's doctor said.
So our advice is that you should take your father to an internal medicine doctor for a thorough examination, or do a medical check-up at a general practitioner to assess kidney function, liver function, heart function through a series of tests, in the form of blood tests, X-rays, heart records and others. Meanwhile, help your father to live a healthy lifestyle by avoiding cigarette smoke, eating fiber-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit, regular exercise according to your ability, drinking lots of water and staying away from stress and taking regular breaks. So, hopefully it answers your question.
