Shock Wave Lithotripsy (SWL) is the most common treatment for kidney stones in the U.S. Shock waves from outside the body are targeted at a kidney stone causing the stone to fragment. The stones are broken into tiny pieces. lt is sometimes called ESWL: Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy

That's a method that definitely has proven clinical results. Unfortunately the kidney stones have to be of a certain size to do it, but it's good that it exists as a treatment for those that meet the conditions!

I'm not a candidate for the magical soundwave therapy. This is because, unlike last time, the symptoms I thought signaled the onset of a kidney stone's wistful journey through the sentimental passages of my body were something else entirely:

gastritis, likely triggered by a viral infection. I lost some blood too. Maybe I'll get a kidney stone from these iron pills?

Possibly karma from naughtiness.
And nobody in all of Oz. No Wizard that there is or was.

yeah, and the naughtiness has metastasized. It's terminal.
