    Crikey!!! :( Glad you got to the bottom of it and they can hopefully fix you up-As you know a similar thing happened to me the other week and for some reason they've asked me to repeat the urine test so god knows what that means but whatever the truth-I want to know what it is so they can sort it-the pain and bleeding is not very nice to say the least as you also have sadly experienced :(

    Best

    I'm sorry that you both have that problem, everybody says how painful it can be.
    Hopefully they will be able to find out what your stones are made of and give you appropriate advice.
    There is a lot on the net but there are some controversies and I think that you'll have to research those for yourselves.

    It must be frustrating but I agree with Mongoose on this as you've been through the mill with all this and you need to take some chill out time so you can recuperate properly :wink:
