    Hi Andy,
    You'll be pleased you finally managed to discover the root of the problem, but no doubt you'll be apprehensive regarding the forth coming pain that has been mentioned.
    I had a kidney stone and the pain was bad for sure, it lasted all morning, however as soon my doc gave me a pain killer via injection I was able to go back to work an hour later.

    I was very fortunate in that the stone eventually came away of it's own accord and I never felt a thing. I just spotted what looked like a lump of brown sugar. Amazingly, after experiencing so much pain, I never felt a thing as it came away.

    Though I didn't need it, I was told the hospital usually blast these stones into tiny fragments which allows them to pass naturally without pain.
    I truly hope the same applies to you and all goes well for you and that any pain you do feel is as minimal as possible.

    All the very best to you.

    I'll be thinking of you.

    willie.

    OK, a long time ago as a student nurse I worked on a Genito Urinary ward........

    Big blokes used to come in rolling around in so much agony they would be throwing up..(just remembered another good reason not to go back to nursing). All down to stones on the move, often so small when we sieved there pee you wouldn't find it. Though the tests would show it gone.

    Pain killers were very effective though so once they knew what it was and the painkillers were gone it was more often than not lots of fluids and wait for nature to shift it.

    Thanks Mongoose

    when the building industry died a death in 91 i spent a couple of years working in theaters at queen marys roehampton as a criculating nurse (untrained dogs body if it sounds cool it aint lol) all the times i watched the tube going places it shouldnt go and the blokes faces is all coming flooding back, i hope to god this dosent happen but after looking it up it seems the bladder stones dont normally pass and im not sure where the tract ones are but a tract sounds like a tube of some kind so im hoping they do there thing :) its a kind of weird feeling not knowing when i could be in pain like that again, i can almost hear ticking

    Daft question perhaps.....
    Has anyone heard of ladies suffering from kidney stones?
    It always appears to be us men who mention them. I've
    never noticed or heard any lady mention they've suffered
    from them.

    I intended to ask the question in my post this afternoon...
    "Is kidney stone pain worse or equal to birth pains"

    The replies, if any, would've answered the question for me. :D


    willie (I included a smilie above, but it's a genuine question) :thumbup:
