My mom only has one kidney, she lost the other one due to failure after chronic infections. She was just told she had a kidney stone that was seen on a CT scan. Has anyone had this experience or have any advice? It is a bit scary.

I have a kidney transplant with a stone in the new kidney. It hasn't affected the function at all. The only thing your Mom might need to worry about is pain. If it does begin to hurt, there are treatments.
