Talking about it, she said, "On May 1st, I tested positive for Covid, and it was a short one for me. I recovered in 5 days. But for my husband Babu, it took 40 days to recover. On June 22, around 3 AM in the morning, I experienced an extreme pain on my lower back. I thought it must be some sort of a muscle spasm, but the pain did not reduce.

Around 3.30, I called my sister who was a nursing staff at a private hospital. After hearing my complaints, she suggested me to visit a hospital immediately. The Medical officials took several tests, including a CT scan. They informed me that there was a stone in my kidney which was travelling to my ureter and because of that, I experienced immense pain on my lower back. The stone was 7.8 mm in size. The doctors informed that a surgery needs to be performed immediately to remove the stone and we also agreed for the same. The surgery happened and the stone was removed.

After that, the Doctors advised me to drink lots and lots of water on a daily basis. Water has the potential to save you from developing stones inside your body. The Doctors advised me to consume atleast 3.5 litres of water on a regular basis. I have started to drink and you also do".
