What are your stones made of? Were you deficient in any chemicals on the 24 hour urine collection? Was any medication prescribed?
Uric stones can be treated with certain medications depending on what your blood work shows. I'm surprised that your doctors told you that there's nothing that can be done for this. This indicates to me that your doctor is not really a specialist in treating kidney stones. My recommendation would be for you to get into a major university medical center where they have a stove specialist who does nothing but treat kidney stones. You likely would be a candidate to be started on a medication to prevent your gas and stones from forming. This will completely depend on blood work as well as a review of your 24 hour urine collection studies. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.
