Blow! Hey NoVa doctor informed me today my first CT scan was wrong. My stone isn't 5mm it's 7mm and triangle in shape. Can't pass it so it's surgery Thursday morning. Anyone who hasn't had them. You DO NOT ever want them. Put me out of my misery.
That sucks man, good luck
Im gonna be so PO'ed if I ever get one
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
I have had them and they are about as bad as it gets.
I thought ultrasound tech could be used to break them down instead of surgery?
I have talked to someone that said never to do that. Because instead of one large stone you have to pass several small stones and it is terrible.
First time I got one. I used words in sentences I never knew would fit. I had just got divorced and was living alone. I had to call my dad in the middle of the night. He and
One nurse said they thought I was going to arch my back the wrong way and then my head start spinning around lol.
By far the worst pain Ive ever endured and Ive been through some bad shit.
I pray I never get one. Had a roid not long ago and that was painful enough. Heard it's not crap compared to a stone.
Did the Doc give you any preventive steps to take for future stones? I always heard to drink plenty of water to help prevent. Any truth to this?
I have been told cranberry juice.
I've had the procedure. Get ready to piss black cherry kool aid for a day or two. They left a stint in me for a week. That part is really awkward. Your junk is gonna be sore for a couple of days but the pain meds help. Not gonna lie man it sucks pretty bad. Your kidney won't hurt anymore though. Good luck man!
Told me soft drinks and foods with cheese. I love italian foods so I cant give up cheese. This is my 4th stone. First one in 6 years. He also said drink alot of water, cranberry juice. I like sugar free drink mix in water and he said that was ok.
I've had 2.
Sucked so much. One I got in the middle of a shift.
Beer also helps but for some odd reason doctors won't recommend it because it's not healthy or some sort of crap like that
It doesn't help enough or clearly I would never get one.
yeah that is the best for your entire urinary system
Sadly you gotta be careful cause lots of cranberry juices aren't good for you, you gotta find certain ones

Ugh, wut ?
I actually take cranberry pills a guy told me about. I haven't had any stones since I started taking them.
I have heard that too.
Word, that is probably the best way to go
Something about the peeing it makes you do.
Again, it's unhealthy but it works.
Since I quit drinking liquor and just beer, I haven't had any kidney stones or issues with them.
Dude, that sucks. I had two about six months ago and still to this day have phantom pains. Some of the worst pain I have ever felt. Good luck on Thursday. I am almost jealous you are having surgery to get rid of it. It took me a week and a half to pass both stones.
I had my first 7 years ago, passed about 6 and been to the hospital it was so bad 3 times.
They discouraged me from drinking soft drinks and told me I could never drink sweet tea again.
They recommended lots of water. But they also said if I get a stone I could drink beer because it could help with the pain and makes you pee a lot to help the stone pass faster.
The down side obviously is you can't take a pain pill after choosing this route.
Anyway, good luck to the OP.
Thanks guys. I have always drank alot of water, and beer for that matter. Keep myself on a strict vitamin regiment. Think I will add cranberry pills to it. Knock on wood, never had one. But one of the toughest guys I know said he thought he was dying when he passed one. Good luck to the OP.
First time I got one I went to the emergency room because I had no idea what was going on.
Same here. I actually thought my stomach was dissolving. Again, probably the worst pain I have ever experienced. I was looped for a week on powerful pain meds and that did not help that much. It is funny that something the size of a grain of salt causes that much misery.
Never had one and sure don't want to experience one.
I drink a lot of sweet tea though....yikes
