Kidney stones are affidavit of minerals as a gem solidification of natural components, mostly found in the kidney calyces and pelvis. The quantitative research approach with one group pretest and post test design was used in this study with 60 patients with ureteric calculi. The demographic data was collected by structured questionnaire and the intensity of the pain due to ureteric calculi was assessed by Numeric pain rating scale. Beans therapy was given, i.e., the patients were advised to take boiled beans water 5 times a day. The results revealed that in the pretest, 40(66.67%) had moderate pain, 15(25%) had severe pain and 5(8.33%) had mild pain whereas after the administration of beans therapy, 40(66.66%) had mild pain, 19(31.67%) had moderate pain and only one (1.67%) had no pain. The findings show that the mean score of pain intensity among patients with ureteric calculi was 5.38±1.53 and the post-test mean score was 2.85±1.34. The calculated paired ‘t’ test value of t = 26.265 was found to be statistically significant at p<0.001. The study findings revealed that most of the samples were relieved of pain due to ureteric calculi which infers that beans therapy administered to the patients enhanced the removal of small kidney stones which ultimately resulted in the reduction of pain among patients with ureteric calculi.
