I recently passed a 7.5mm stone(I am a 30 year old male). Three years ago I passed on that was bigger, and at that time it was calcium oxalate. This time it is calcium phosphate. I have been drinking about a half of a glass of lemon juice a day(diluted), and am trying to cut back on my sodium, but want to know what kind of dirt I should follow to prevent more stones. I drink a good amount of water a day already and I am vegetarian(I eat eggs and dairy though). I am worried because it was horrible passing the stone. I have been reading that lemon juice is good at preventing calcium stones, but it may be bad for phosphate stones, so I am not sure if I should keep with the lemon juice. I should also note that I do not have insurance(its a long story How I was able to get the stone analysed), and though I am trying to get insurance, I still want some advice to prevent these stones.
Thanks in advance!
