Sgygus: Kidney stones: so men can experience the pain of childbirth.


According to a couple female doctors I know who had gone through both, kidney stones are much much worse. I once drove my manual shift car home with a broken left leg (fibula) because I didn't feel like going to the ER and drove myself to orthopedist the next day. Kidney stones have had me on the floor out of my mind.

I've had two stones. Not fun. First one was horrific. Second one was pretty rough, but not even close to as bad as the first one.

The worst part is the pain in your back. You just can't get comfortable. The first one was stuck in my ureter - my body kept trying to push it, but it wouldn't move (had to be blown up by lithotripsy). The pulsing of my body felt like somebody had suck a plunger inside and kept using it.

With all the advances in medicine, why do kidney stone patients still have to go through the agony of passing their stones? How come we haven't figured out how to surgically remove them, like gallstones?

I have tiny stones, and have passed a few barely noticing them. I am not looking forward to the day I get the "big one". Any advice on how to lower the risk of developing the crazy ones?

After my first one, I was told to stay hydrated, drink plenty of juices with citric acid (helps to break up stuff) and cut back on all the red meat.

Worst farking pain I've ever had. I wouldn't wish it on anyone, even a douche like Neil.

I about fainted when the big nugget finally peed out.

I would have done anything to stop that pain the first time, about 5 am on a Sunday morning. I would have strapped a suicide vest on and blown up anything someone told me to.

I drink lots of water. I take a Potassium Citrate supplement, and I cut out sugar (psuedo-paleo diet). I have gout too, so I take a guanefesin supplement as well anyway to lower the uric acid concentration. It's all really helped. Worst part: happened exactly 1 week after my vasectomy, and again the next weekend too.

Thanks. From what I've read, lettuce and spinach (and leafy green veggies) contain a chemical that promotes the formation of stones as well. I drink a lot of cranberry juice, but should try incorporating more orange juice, lemonade, and (I really hate the stuff) grapefruit juice as well. Red meat isn't as much of a problem since I prefer my steaks at least medium (though I tolerate a little pink); at least now I have an excuse, since most of my family thinks I'm weird for hating rare steak.

/or does the restriction against red meat disregard the level of doneness, and depends on the type of meat?

If your teeth and stomach lining can handle it, a glass of REAL lemonade every or every other day. Real meaning made with fresh lemons or lemon concentrate - not Snapple, Countrytime, Crystal Light etc.

I suppose my acid reflux is better than kidney stones but it's lose/lose either way.

Greta_VanHouten: If your teeth and stomach lining can handle it, a glass of REAL lemonade every or every other day....I suppose my acid reflux is better than kidney stones but it's lose/lose either way.


I took out most of the sugar--essentially doing ice water with lemon. My acid reflux hated it until my doc told me to increase my fiber input up to 10g of in/soluble fiber powder before meals 3x a day (over the span of  about a week). I haven't had any acid reflux since even with the increased citrate. Something about small intestine absorption issues.

And it's not supposed to be a classic even when compared to other releases at its time. Still, it somehow was memorable for me nearly the same way Jaws, Last Crusade, and Story of Ricky were, among many others.

B.L.Z. Bub: With all the advances in medicine, why do kidney stone patients still have to go through the agony of passing their stones? How come we haven't figured out how to surgically remove them, like gallstones?


There are ways. For my first one, I had a procedure called lithotripsy, which consisted of my laying on my side on a special table. The table had a bladder that filled with water and a layer of water was also added between my side and the table.

They target the stone with ultrasound pulses. Hundreds (or thousands) them. They break up the front and back of the stone as they pass through. They keep pulsing until the stone is fractured enough to be passed.

They gave me a little bit of anesthetic before hand - I was still conscious (they recommend bringing a music player so you can listen to something), but wasn't allowed to move.

The feeling is just like touching a door knob and getting an electric shock - except the shocks keep coming. After the initial surprise of the first one, you get used to it really quickly and the session becomes one of boredome (thus the music player).

After, I was expecting some blood to be passed the first time - but not that much! It's quite a bit!

Nice thing about that procedure is that the stone is gone and the pain subsides almost immediately. You screen out fragments for the next couple weeks and provide them to the doctors for testing (most stones are calcium-based, but they want to make sure you don't have something else going on).

My buddy had his removed a different way. In his words, they shoved a "polaroid camera" up you know where, grabbed the stone and pulled it out.

I guess I should add - yeah, there was a treatment available, but I had to wait a month before a spot opened up for me! That was a tiring month - I wasn't very much good at work. Luckily I hold down a keyboard most of the time because most of my work is inventory control and IT. One day, I had to go out and sort through 137 tires by myself because of an inventory issue. That was a bit tiring when I was already half-whacked.

The second time, I lucked out and passed it fairly quickly - the painkillers were doing their job (one guy seemd surprised I only took T3s with codeine - I think he was overreacting). It was quite large, but apparently my first one was quite a bit bigger.

My kidney stones have all felt like a 16 pound, iron, spiked bowling ball sitting just above my right hip. It is, by far, the worst pain I have ever experienced. The worst part about kidney stone pain is that it does not stop. Unlike most other kinds of pain that ebb and flow, the pain from a kidney stone remains constant. I was thoroughly amazed that such an amount of pain could come from something so tiny.

Mine come from sodium and calcium, so I have to watch how much of either one I consume. Once I feel any kind of kidney pain, I start guzzling water, which usually helps me to flush any stones out.

I've had them off and on for 15 years, but I've never found myself to be yelling, screaming, vomiting like I've heard other people do. And my last one was 8mm by 4mm. I fished it out of the toilet when it went plink and stuck it under the microscope.

It has nothing to do with the level of how it's cooked. Red meat is red meat. Generally, I alternate days (beef, chicken/turkey, pork, etc.) and I'm good.

My first stone came during a particularly dry time in the place I was living and I wasn't drinking enough water and I'd had been going to Whataburger for most of the week and having a burger and sweet tea. Tea was also a factor, I was told.

I'm pretty sure getting gut-shot won't be as bad as the first kidney stone I noticed.

Thankfully, any subsequent ones have passed with a minimum of pain. And hopefully it stays that way.

Not to take away from what Vince did, but if you're dumb enough to get in the car with a member of Motley Crue for the 4th beer run of the night, you kind of deserve whatever happens.

I have a 13mm stone in my right kidney, two in the 3-4mm range in my left kidney, and an 8mm stone lodged in my left ureter that sent me to the ER 4 weeks ago, so I'm really getting a kick (in the kidney) out of some of these replies.

/I've been on a waiting list for surgery for two weeks now to get the one in my ureter removed. Hurray for HMOs.

Good.

I hope he gets another one, and another, and another ...
