Nicholas D. Wolfwood: Just passed a kidney stone yesterday, so I'm getting a kick, etc.


Last time for me meant two rounds of SWL.  The stone was the size of a quarter on Xray.  After each surgery it took about 4 days to start pissing out up to a dozen broken up pieces of stone, most of which were about 2mm.  Often smaller, sometimes bigger.

I laughed my ass off when I ran out of "pressure" and one got stuck in my willy.  Chugged water and it out without incident but boy was that annoying.
