    I had an attack during my time on the bike in an endurance race one time. Pretty interesting.

    I had no idea . I thought it was constipation . Major cramping, nothing worked . Ended up going to the hospital on the 3rd of July . Lucky I got there in the morning . Just before I went in for scans , the ambo's started coming for from a 3 car pile up.

    Flow-max is what they gave me.
    Pissed blood then a stone the size of a rice grain.
    Hang in there, drink lots and jump down some stairs to loosen them up

    The Doc, she offered me Flowmax, but then she said "our studies indicate that drinking fluids doesn't necessarily enhance passing kidney stones" ?
    I wasn't exactly thinking straight at the moment, so I should have taken them..The nurse however said drink till your about to explode! She said what others have said..she said she's had kidney stones and two children..she said she'd take birth each time.
    Seriously..I think your stair advice..makes sense..lol I'm thinking about doing anything to expedite this ordeal.

    I don't get it... ??
    Last time 20 yrs ago, I had this problem they used ultrasound to identify & broke them up right there on the spot and sent me home..

    This time, they give me a Cat scan.. and tell me they don't do that anymore that it is an outpatient procedure at another location if deemed necessary and then... they send you home to suffer.

    Somebody's getting paid big bucks through insurance for that CAT scan though....? Everyone comes out ahead, except the patient ?

    I'm trying, I'm trying Sarge!

    I normally feel like this.
    But during the Kidney Stones..this seems to be the reality..

    I wound up in the ER w/ 1 kidney stone. The next nite, i back at ER w/ a 2nd one. Third night, 3rd kidney stone.... skipped the ER. I had to wait Friday-Monday to get surgery. Was brutal.

    I was told in the ER that since it was a holiday weekend, they were short staffed as far as surgery was concerned or they would have done it then.
    However, I was referred to a urologist . They gave me the ultrasound option, but said it only had a 80% chance.
    And it was done at their faculty and is done every other week.

    I've had so many kidney stones i've lost count. Only had to get lithotripsy once.

    Largest one i've passed was 9mm. 10mm stone needed the lithotripsy.

    I really don't think they're as bad as everyone says they are. I passed one at work during a meeting (went to the bathroom of course). They could hear me laughing in the bathroom, I walked into the room holding the kidney stone.

    I've now completely changed my diet and haven't had any in awhile. Lemon juice ftw.

    Because it seems like every other bad thing in the world has happened to you.
    I don't think I could hang out with you because I'd always be waiting for lightning to strike or perhaps a meteor hit.

    I have had issues with kidney stones for 40 years. I have never needed surgery but have been curled up n the corner whimpering like a poisoned puppy on a few occasions. I probably average 3-4 a year and they seem to occur close to each other.

    The worst I ever had was in Sturgis one year, started bothering me the day before I was leaving to come home. I had to be home to go back to work so I climbed, gingerly onto my Harley and headed for home. I was in agony the whole way. I pulled into the drive and basically fell in a heap. My wife helped me in the house and was getting herself ready to take me to the ER and I passed it. I cussed up a storm because I had not been home 15 minutes and it hung with me for 3 days on the trip home, I prayed I wasn't dying and prayed that I would all the way home.
