My brother has done the Coke/asparagus thing for kidney stones and it worked for him. It is a cheap and easy thing to try. There are several variations but the same basic jist.

"My doctor told me to buy a 6-8 oz can of asparagus and a 6-pack of Coca Cola. He also told me I would need a blender and a timer would be helpful. First blend the asparagus in a blender, set the timer for 20 minutes and drink down your asparagus 'soup'. When the timer rings, reset the timer for 20 minutes, and drink the first Coke. When the timer rings, reset it for 20 minutes, and drink the next Coke. You may be catching a pattern about now and you are right continue until all the Cokes are gone. I am not a big carbonated beverage fan so by about the third can I was getting abit overloaded, but I had faith in my doctor and finished off all six cans of Coke. Just remember to set the timer at the BEGINNING of every round and finish the round before the timer rings.
If you want proof other than the relief from pain that you will experience then my doctor suggested urinating into a container through a piece of nylon (ie panty hose) and you will see the crystals of were once those very painful kidney stones. I asked the doctor how it worked and he was honest and told me he really wasn't sure. Asparagus is a natural diuretic and Coke will dissolve a nail and somehow this combination with this timing works. I was pain free for years and when I had a minor recurrence recently I got out the timer, the blender, bought some asparagus and Coke and I blew up some kidney stones and once again no more pain."

My mother had one last year. She had to let it run it's course. They were able to tell her where it was as it worked it's way through, but there wasn't much she could do but wait.
