I have a large kidney stone. I have been told by the hospital they cant do anything because I don't have insurance. I was told if it causes problems again do not come back there. Is there anything I can do to shrink the stone? I don't have a regular doctor. Help

Please find a way to get proper treatment, even if that means free clinics, etc.

Beyond that, however, click on the following link for some basic information which may help. But, considering your kidney stone is 'large', any home treatment may not achieve what you need.

I'm sorry you're having to face this without insurance and hope you find some avenues open to you.
