I just had a bout of kidney stones...a terrible experience, and I'm still feeling some pain/discomfort in the kidney area. Has anyone else suffered kidney stones or other kidney problems?
I'm wondering what I can do to help my kidney and liver recover from the stones and pain killers. I unfortunately had to manage the pain with vicodin (tylenol plus hydrocodone), which probably put quite a burden on my liver...though my docs and mw reassured me that managing the pain (so I could eat, drink and sleep) was important and that it wouldn't affect the baby as long as I kept below the limit. I'd rather not hear from everyone how that was a terrible decision (what's done is done)....right now I'm more concerned with getting myself back to full health.
Can anyone suggest herbs, nutrients, or other natural approaches for recovering from this illness? I'm 24 weeks pg. Thank you.
For kidney health, I'd be especially making sure to drink enough water every day (and peeing frequently.)
