My husband has a very large kidney stone, second since April, he's on Plavix, and he has drug eluding stents.  Urologist says he has to go off Plavix for 7 days before any procedures.  He's been on Plavix for about 6 years now.  Anyone know what the risks are, heart-wise, in going off it for a week or so?

Also, his vitamin D level was really low - 27 - so he went on 8000 IU D3 gel caps.  I shamelessly nagged him until he got his doc to retest - 97 - which is a little high, right?  He's gone down to 6000 IU, but just in the last week or so.  I've heard conflicting reports about whether the high D levels could be a contributing factor.  Dr. Cannell (sp) website says no - stones caused by oxolate, not calcium.  Anybody have any further info on that?

He's had kidney stones before this year, but very infrequently - 3 in about 30 years.

Thanks for any guidance/information you can provide.
Linda

Thanks, ptheut.  He just had an xray with contrast this morning to see where it is and what it is doing.  Hoping his kidneys are OK.

I agree with the magnesium/B6/K2 suggestion. Maybe also try Chanca Piedra: http://www.rain-tree.com/chanca.htm

Linda,

Sorry to read about your husband.  Hope that all goes well. 

I too have read conflicting reports about Vit D.  Can't add anything to what others posted.
