He points out that women who go through child birth frequently decide to have another child, but no one who passes a kidney stone has ever volunteered to do it again! :lol:

I feel for you , man . I had one years ago...after walking around for a week or so holding my lower stomach area , I passed it while urinating. The pain was so intense that I passed out and knocked myself out on the sink. My wife called an ambulance . When I came to , I saw 2 paramedics hovering over me. Spent a week in the hospital and they could not find anything . I was told that I probably passed it and passed out.

Best wishes man, have had four different occasions of passing stones...lmao, first one actually knocked me off my feet, literally...couldn't even walk without help.hurt to beat hell, but I wouldn't let them operate, and instead snuck out of the hospital, came home and drank loads of water while lying in a hottub with the jets beating my kidneys to break it up...ithnk the worst part was not knowing what it was...the rest have all hurt too, but progressively less...I think Ive had so many Im getting used to them lol....diet plays a huge role. But, Im not gonna stop drinking tea or milk, or eating red meat,so it is what it is. Last couple I just wanted some pain pills so I could work thru it with some peace...not fun at all man! Hopefully you'll be stone free from now on...

Thanks everyone. They blasted the stone with a laser and the stent is to let all that wreckage pass. I'm in a much better place now, physically and mentally, though I am slightly dreading the removal of the stent tomorrow morning. There's a string currently poking out of the end of my 'business', which they will give a firm tug then. My buddy and my mom both say when theirs were removed, blood flew everywhere....not something to look forward to! :-#

Tim - hope you feel better soon. The image of the string, the ensuing yank...Kind of like a party popper but not really. :shock:

Hope you are back in action quickly and painlessly.

Prayers to you buddy. Hope you are feeling better real soon. I had my first stone at age 16 and 8 more over the next 34 years. Some I passed on my own and others required a stent and multiple lithotripsy treatments.

Kidney stones are the most intense pain I have ever felt. Morphine is your only friend when suffering with a stone. Hang in there and let us know how you are doing.

Best wishes my friend. I've danced with these four times. Just impossible to describe the pain. Drink, drink, drink. Good luck!
