Most kidney stones pass through the body naturally within a few hours or days. Doctors advise patients to drink plenty of fluids and often recommend a special diet to help with the process.

Larger kidney stones must be surgically removed, needless to say, Sardaki’s kidney stone feel into this category.

Sardaki’s kidney stone weighed in at a staggering 2.48lbs (1.12 kg). Doctors say he is now on speedy track to recovery.
