How large is your kidney stone? If it is larger than 2cm, it is suggested to try percutaneous nephrostolithotomy. If it is smaller than 2cm, it is suggested to try flexible ureteroscopy. Ask your surgeon. You can try to examine your stone content and the result may indicate what you can eat or not in daily life.

How to break up the kidney stones depends on the size and number of the stones. If they are multiple or they are larger than 2cm, then it is unlikely that you can get rid of them without surgical intervention. If they are smaller, it can be broken up by extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy.

As for the prevention of kidney stones, there is a fantastic blog that addresses this:
Braggs vinegar. I get them too. This breaks them up. Stone free for yrs now.
What dosage for the vinegar?
Do you take it straight,  mix it ??
Apple cider vinegar contains citric acid which can soften and dissolve kidney stones. You can mix two tablespoons of Bragg apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of honey in lukewarm water, then drink this once or twice a day. Repeat this everyday until you experience relief from the kidney stones.
