Enough to make a grown man cry...

Got up this morning and started the normal routine: checking email, getting started with work, catching up on "world events". About 9:00, I started feeling like I had a charlie horse in my right side abdomen towards the back. Figured I just twisted wrong or something so I continued on. By 9:30, it was bad... The worst pain I've ever felt. I can handle pain, but this was different. It got to the point where I was getting sick because of the pain. Suffered through it for another half an hour and gave up and drove myself to the hospital. They put me in a wheelchair as soon as I walked in because they thought I was going to pass out. Initial verdict: Kidney stone... They take me straight back and get an IV started and start with some pain meds. 30 minutes later it still hurt as bad as ever, plus now it felt like someone had roshambo'ed my right testicle! So they decided to switch to the good stuff... Once the morphine kicked in, the pain went away. Talk about a relaxing feeling! They ran me thru 2 bags of saline to get me to the point where I could get them a urine sample. I go to do my thing, and the first thing out is the stone! 3mm. Doesn't sound big until you start thinking about the path it took... Luckily the drugs were still in full effect so there was no pain on that end... CT scan shows another 3mm stone in the left kidney that could drop at any time. Looking forward to that one. Finally got out of the hospital around 4:00. Still trying to recover. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy...

Reading that made me go turtle.
I'm glad it was less painful for you than it could have been, and I hope the other one gets passed as painlessly. I wouldn't want to piss one of those out without drugs.

Re: Enough to make a grown man cry...

3 mm? Dayumm. Do they have the sonic pulverizing machine at your local hospital? Some don't and say it's BS, but my Dad had several and it worked wonders.

and your girlfriend too.

Re: Enough to make a grown man cry...

My brother has had kidney stones. I've heard it's some of the worst pain you can have (for a male anyway).

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

That is simply the grossest thing I've heard in a while. Ok, several hours. Ok, 5 minutes. God bless CSI!

Re: Enough to make a grown man cry...

Never had one but the boys at work have had them. DAMN, sucks to be them. Kept tellin' 'em, drink the water not the coffee, tea and, sodas.

Sorry about the other one but at least this time you will know what is going on with it.

It sucks to be you.

On the otherhand I'm glad it was nothing more.

Good luck on the 2nd round. Hopefully the Doc can help.

Sorry to hear about that, just drink lots of water thats the only thing I have heard to help prevent them.
