Ok my husband has kidney stones. Normal they pass in a day. He has been to the ER three times now in the past week. Can you get more that one stone going through in one week?

Absolutely. You can have as many stones as have calcified because of poor diet and lack of water. Most of them you will probably never see because they're smaller than a grain of sand, but the big ones, painful as they may be, are much better passed than stuck.

You may find a wealth of information (3000 pages) at this research web site about the topic http://www.urologystone.com

Fortunately kidney stone formation can be well managed and treated. An immediate change in diet is important, as well as many other things, to minimize recurrence.

Your husband should not be visiting the ER. He should be seeing a urologist immediately and be under their care.
