Editor: you will recollect that we use this section for cases which responded fast and best, and with results, we are happy with. This is one such case of Renal Calculus. We have all treated hundreds of Renal Calculi. So what is so special about this? This had a calculus at the renal calyx, which is more difficult to treat. The ureteric calculi are simpler to treat. Here we are able to demonstrate the result and the remedy from the follow-up interview and the USG.

The last follow up was interesting. We have a system of noting down symptoms as 1, 2, 3, etc. So assistant had taken the Full Follow up in this format. Then she got busy with follow up of another patient. Later when I took the patient in, they just sat there quietly - both husband and wife, till went through full case follow up. Then he extended the USG to me, again with no word, expressionlessly. He had not deemed it fit to show the film to the assistant, so she had made no mention of it in the FU!! I put the film up in the viewer and only then did I realize the import of the cure! No Stone! (This too confirms the remedy Thuj)

So, I too, showed none of my inner excitement. Told him, okay my work is done. Now yours begins. I will now stop medication, because as long as I am giving you medicine, the onus of your health will be on me, and you will not make any effort. Now you only can help yourself not get a recurrence. You have to drink 2 litres daily and walk 1 hr daily to keep your blood sugar under control. This should now become life long habits, to stay fit and control both your diseases and hold them at bay. If you relax, they will make a come back.
Here Thuja was repeated weekly or fortnightly, due to position of the calculi. Also patient took 2 months to do the repeat USG.
