When you say your calcium and sodium was high, I assume you mean they were high in your 24 hour urine collection. This is a common finding in stone formers. In the kidney, salt and calcium are co-transported, meaning they are pumped out into the urine together, therefore, when you have a diet high in sodium and your kidney is pumping that sodium (salt) out, calcium is pushed out as well as an innocent bystander. The first piece of advice I would give you is to cut down the salt in your diet. remember that it can be hidden in prepared foods, so you have to ask and pay attention to sodium content. Your goal is 2000mg of sodium per day or less.
If that doesn't work to bring down your urinary calcium, a medication like chlorthaladone or hydrochlorothiazide might be considered.
Finally, you should see a urologist to get rid of the stones. Almost any stone is treatable these days, usually with minimally invasive methods.
