Kidney Stones

Hi, I had a large calcium oxolate stone get stuck in my ureter, just above the bladder.  It caused the urine to back up into my kidney, and because it was stagnant, caused me to get a kidney infection and I went septic and almost died.  After to surgeries, I was sent home with a new diet.  There are a number of foods to avoid, as these are high in oxollate.  I was told to consume milk products with my meals to bind the calcium to the oxolates found in food.  Since then, my doctor did a test and found that I am lactose intolerant.  My doctor doesn't want me to consume lactose free products either or soy products.  So, how do I get calcium rich foods to bind with oxolate if I can't have milk or soy products?  My Dietician told me to supplement with Calcium Citrate supplements.  Is this O.K.?
