Kidney stones

Wow, I got hit the other night with a pain that almost tossed me on the floor. I had a CT in the ER and confirmed a 4mm stone. Hasn't passed yet, I have a follow up on Monday.

What age were you when you got them? Had them only once? What was used for pain, and what was the final outce?

I thought the docs could give you something to disolve them if caught early enough. Good luck, did not have the pleasure yet.

My brother had one at 39. He was in the hospital for 3 days trying to deal with it. It eventually passed through the urine after drinking cans of Arizona Ice Tea. It was the most excruciating pain he said he ever experienced. He was also on some narco grade pain killers.

I had it time when I was 22. The pain is unbelievable. I was pissing pure blood for 3 straight days until the sucker or I should say suckers came out. I did everything imaginable:

Soaked in a very hot bathtub, drinked cooking oil (for lubrication) ate a lot of watermelon, drink a lot of beer, and I mean a lot until it came out.

I am with you brother, suck it up, get some codine and don’t be ashamed to cry and keep walking.

The second time I ended in a hospital for 4 days after loosing conciseness.

If it's too big to pass, and it might be, go get it blasted into smaller bits.

People say that kidney stones are as painful as child birth, but only women can truely make that statement. Women don't have testicles, so I say that kidney stones are worse than child birth because it is the same pain as child birth with the added pleasure of the feeling of someone standing on your balls.

If you get them once, you have a high risk of getting them again. Usually their is some kind of chemical analysis of the stone done to determine the "type" of stone. Based on the type of stone, they will recommend some change in your diet to try and prevent them in the future. But ultimately I dont think they know why anyone gets them.

I've had 2 in my life, they came 5 years apart, and 4 years since the last one. I went to the E/R the first time, the second I knew what was happening... so I decided to just vomit at home and pass out in my own bed from all the pain. I guess I was lucky, because eventually I guess I was able to pass all the little ninja stars, but it took about a full day of labor from beginning to end.

All I can say is good luck.

FYI, any oil is passed in the bowels, not the kidney or bladder. That is why greasy food gives people the shits. If you have a kid that is constipated you give them mineral oil, as a natural laxative. I asked about the olive oil and lemon juice that everyone online seems to suggest and was told the lemon juice would just add to the acid content of the urine and make it burn even more where the stone scratches the ducts, and the oil would just give him the shits. The more you know.

I don't ride, I cook!

I thought I heard they can use ultrasound to blast the stone apart, but you still have to pass it. But I hope your choices wouldn't end up being pass it in one smooth lump, or in lots of jagged smaller pieces.

The only other thing I can think of is maybe they can inject something into your bladder to dissolve the stone?

Gotta drink alot of water. Had one a couple years ago. You're right, Dave. I thought I was gonna freakin die. Left work and drove myself to the hospital.

Doc said to drink water and it'll flush out. Took a couple days.

One thing you gotta remember, the doc at my follow up said that it takes years for these things to develop. They don't form over nite. So just keep drinking water even after it pAsses.

I had a cystoscopy about 4 years ago. They did put me under and use ultra sound to crush the stones and performed uteral stent insertion. It was an outpatient surgery but I had the stent for about a week and yes it was painful to urinate but after a while it turned into "good pain", he he he. I can't remember the size of the stone but I know it was bigger than 4mm (I think it was a 6mm or more).

I knew that, but when you are in so much pain you try everything that remotly make sense. Thanos for explaining it to others.

BTW: Gall Stones are less painfull, dont ask me how I know.

All that "stuff" is friends of the stone. My kidney is still sore, so it may have a "buddy". FML.
