My boyfriend had his first kidney stone when he was 17 years old, the doctors blasted it so he could pass it and gave him meds for it. He passed it and the pain went away. A couple months ago til now he has been complaining about his side, and back hurting and a few months ago he passed a kidney stone when he went to use the bathroom.(he is now 22 years old) I was wondering if this is just kidney stones, or if it could lead to other problems or even diseases. Thanks , Melissa
