Does drinking lots of water help in flushing out stones?

Water helps flush out stones by increasing urine production. Water also reduces your risk of new stones by diluting the chemicals in your urine. Also avoid liquids that dehydrate you, such as caffeine and alcohol.

Follow-up: If you find a stone, bring it in to your doctor for analysis. The type of stone you have, will determine the diet and prevention programme your doctor recommends. You may need additional tests and X-ray in future to ensure that new stones do not form.
