    Angry Kidney Stones WTF

    Was working all day in the field, cutting logs and splitting logs no problem. I came in, had dinner and an hour later I was having left side front area pains. It progressively got worse and felt like my left nut was in a vice. That was odd! Did i generate a hernia? It felt like i need to drop a duce but could not while urinating o.k. I was pacing all over the cabin then with the urge to vomit. Kate thought I was out of my mind. Well that is debatable. Eventually I vomited. I thought it was just some bad food but the pain was still there. Finally made the decision to go to the E-merg-room. First time in my life. I drove not knowing when I was going to puke again. That would have been twice along the way.

    We made it to the Littleton Hospital. What a great little joint. The pain was so bad my legs were shaking on the gurney. yada yada yada blood in the urine.... IV+ Vomit stuff + morphine. 5-10 min later I felt normal. They wheeled me into the CT scan and ....Results is a 4.5mm stone in the ureter and 2 more smaller ones in the kidney in the ready. These smaller ones may or may not come out. Its been nice knowing you here are three scripts. Muscle relaxer (Flomax), 800 Ibuprofen and some heavy hitter pain killer. Oh and make an appointment with a Urologist.

    Its been a week now and still nothing. I've had some side pains and some nausea but nothing like Sunday night. Guess i'll have to continue to wait. I have a followup CT scan later in the month if nothing presents itself to see if it needs to go to the next step.

    Accosting to the DR, anything below a 5mm should pass. Larger than that a procedures need to occur to capture the stones manual. i hope it do not come to that.


    I also learned that my father has had these in the past and this can be a trait that gets passed on. Thanks DAD.

    My mom gets them fairly regularly, scares the hell out of me. I'm your age and that is when she started getting them. Good luck, I hope it isn't a regular occurrence for you, drink lots of water.

    I know what is in your future! PAIN!!!!!!


    Been reading. Don't know how trure it is...

    I've been drinking Apple Cider vinegar and Pomegranate Juice helps reduce the formulation of Kidney stones. Coffee as well. All in moderation. Tea, not so much. I drink lots of tea which supposedly is a bad thing.

    Also heard that Beer is better than white wine that red wine to pass the stone. Pub crawl anyone?

    Re: Kidney Stones WTF

    Your experience is pretty close to mine when I had my first one. First time in the ER for me as well. That kind of pain and incapacitation for the first time is eye opening and terrifying.

    The good news, is you went through the worst already, now that you have drugs they'll keep the edge of enough for the trip through the tip to be tolerable. The wave of relief is like the eye of the hurricane. When the stone hits the bladder you're fine, but then the final press is gonna hurt some again.

    The second stone I got went much better since I knew what to expect and it didnt have the scare factor. Key is to mainline ibuprofen when you thing you have another one. Now I'm super anal about staying hydrated to try and stay ahead of forming another one. I'd rather be stopping all the time to pee then deal with another stone.

    Good luck, they suck to deal with. I've never felt anything like them and I hope to never again.

    Re: Kidney Stones WTF

    Can't they blast them with radio waves in a tub to break them up?

    My grandfather had to have this done a few times.

    Re: Kidney Stones WTF

    They won't do that if they think the stone is passable. That isn't as effective on smaller stones either. They need to be a certain size to break up and then pass. If his stones are on the smaller side that technique won't be as effective, so they try to see if they'll pass on their own first.

    If they're really large surgery becomes the only option.

    Re: Kidney Stones WTF

    If stones get stuck in the ureter and block the flow of urine they'll cut you open and go get it that way. That's worse case scenario and it sounds like you're already past where that would be necessary.

    Re: Kidney Stones WTF

    My dad had to have a stint put in for his kidney stones. We were each living in a side of his duplex and he came over to my side holding the stint saying that he had just spent the last three hours pulling it out. He was beet red, breathing heavy, and sweating despite it being winter in Ohio. The stint was about 3 feet long.

    My wife had them while pregnant and couldn't take any of the good pain meds. I'm going to hold out hope that I dodged the kidney stone gene...

    Re: Kidney Stones WTF

    I'm going through this myself. Mine is up in the kidney and not moving but the first attack came on about a month ago. In the shower washing my hair I thought I was having a back spasm. Then WHAM! It felt like someone inside twisting my kidney. I fell to my hands and knees and felt like vomiting due to the pain. It took about 3 minutes to pass as I just was on my hands and knees in the shower. Since I've been having smaller bouts of pain and told to deal with it. My daughter has had to have the catheter removal of the stones. She is only 25 and has had a lot of problems with them. I now have much more respect for her.

    Hope the baby passes soon Gino. Let us know how you make out...

    I've had very much the same symptoms recently, and stones is what the docs were originally looking for, but as many Ct scans as I've had the past few weeks, they haven't seen any. So far, a benign cyst on my kidney, and stage 2 cirrhosis in my liver. a stimulator implant in my butt with leads to my sacral nerve prohibits MRIs

    My mom had the stint put in due to infectious complications. Post operation they realized they did the wrong kidney.

    Ask doctor for

    HCTZ: Uses, Dosage & Side Effects - Drugs.com

    Greatly reduced kidney stones / frequency and lowered blood pressure

    You will feel a good sized one as you pass

    I asked for a small stock of Oxycodone when / if it hits when like traveling or bikes

    One would think that but scary enough there is sort of a predetermined payout for such an occurrence. Must happen enough to have that much thought behind it??

    Yeah. That's actually true for almost every accident you can dream up. Actuarial science I believe it's called. It's not common the get more than that predetermined figure.
