Sorry you have to endure this Matt. You are brave to keep on functioning through it all.

I hope you like lemonade...

Daisuke cures kidney stones

Are you going to sell yours for charity like Shatner did?

I had gallstones taken out last Friday. One of the wounds (through which they were removed) is now causing me pain.

...Still not as bad as yours, though.

Ugh. I feel your pain - had two before I was 24, and a kidney infection.

Yep, my cousin's wife had a stone while she was pregnant (she has two kids now) and she said the stone was FAR worse. Prolonged pain, no epidural, and no light at the end of the tunnel.

I heard William Shatner sold his kidney stone to Golden Palace.com for $70,000 dollars and used the money to build a house for Habitat for Humanity. It's true. I saw him on Oprah.

Look into it.

My husband has had kidney stones. I remember him writhing in pain one time, obviously when it's moving through your insides. We have the basket & stuff here. Last time he felt bad, he captured it on his own (with cup) and brought it in. And he suffers from headaches too. I wonder if there's a correlation I think he takes Maxalt for that.
Back in '93 we were in Vegas for a few days. He wasn't feeling well, and we ended up in the ER all night. I think they gave him a shot of something & then he was feeling no pain (Demerol?). When they released him in the morning, we ended up checking out & flying back home. What a trip

And I believe the kidney stones run on his side of the family, with either his sister & brother or both...

Hope you are feelin' alright now

Dread, is there anything that predisposes you to this type of occurrence?
