    Kidney stones anyone?

    Interesting afternoon. Started out with a little discomfort which I put down to my recent Hernia repair. Had not had any problems but the discomfort was in that area.
    As the afternoon wore on it got worse then I had the cold sweat and much more discomfit. Ended up calling my wife to let her know I thought a visit to the emergency room was going to be needed.
    What a collection of humanity in the waiting room.

    Several hours later I find I have a 5MM stone obstructing the flow. Pain meds and antibiotics and a trip to an urologist tomorrow.
    Fun afternoon/evening.

    The pain meds work great wish the had given me those a bit earlier. Almost instant relief.
    This is my third in 35 years.

    Kidney Stones are no fun. How's that for an understatment? However, I remembered an episode of Seinfeld:

    Dave - best wishes to you on the upcoming "procedure".

    Your comment about "collection of humanity in the waiting room" reminded me of the courtroom scene in "What's Up Doc".

    Bailiff and judge walk out to start the night court session. Judge looks at courtroom and says to bailiff "Look at them! Did you ever see such a collection of human debris and depravity?"

    Bailiff says "Those are just the spectators."

    Thank you.

    Today has been fine no pain but no stone in the jar either. Took 1 Hydrocodone last night then at 3 am a couple of Advil. Want to stay off the hard stuff.

    Hope you get over this soon with as little discomfort as possible. Hang in there!

    Several years ago, I needed two operations to get rid of an impacted kidney stone. Catheter problems - trips to the ER -you don't wanna know. Thankfully, no repetitions to date. My first and only stone. I'm now taking potassium pills twice a day. Check with your urologist.

    The ER sent the scans and blood work to the urologist and he is reviewing them. Hope he gets on with it as I am ready to get rid of this stone. Had to resort to the hard stuff last night about 2 am.
