Wow, who woulda thought that a Kidney stone could do this to a person.... 

 

ER trip Sunday night, then bed-ridden until Wednesday when I got better meds...

 

Now I'm in 'discomfort' until Monday's surgery, when they stick a tube up my #### and blast the stone with a laser. 

 

:mad

 

 

 

Update 1 (6/19): First Surgery was unsuccessful. My Ureter was too constricted to allow for the instrument to get up to my kidney. The Doc has implanted a stent which should dialate my tube and he'll try again in 2 weeks. 

 

 

Update 2 (7/6): SUCCCESS!!!!! He blasted the stone with the laser and now there's only little fragments left for me to pass over the next few days.  What a relief! I've turned the corner on this thing and am excited to get back to life and activity.

I have literally passed 77 stones to date PASSED  not blowed up.  Haven't had one in about 8 months though.  They had me try all kinds of medicine and nothing ever worked.

My Urologist told me I was just one of the lucky ones (major sarcasm)

I'm sorry rat. 

That's not lucky at all. 

 

Mine is too big to pass (8mm won't fit down a 4mm ureter), so its gotta get lazed.

They can't use ultrasound to break it up?

I'm just getting home from the procedure right now and the anesthesia is wearing off. 

 

Unfortunately it didn't go as planned, they couldn't get the stone.

Apparently my ureter is slightly misshapen and the Dr couldn't get the instrument all the way up to the stone.

So, he left a stent in there and that will stretch out my 'virgin' ureter for a couple weeks, then he tries again. (he sounded confident that the next procedure would work just fine).

 

At least now, with the stent in place, I won't be at risk of the level 10(million) pain from when the ureter gets blocked and the kidney starts spasming. 

 

 

They can't use ultrasound to break it up?

 

That was an option, but I elected not to have that procedure done. 

The primary reason is that for 5 days leading up to the ultrasound you can't have any NSAIDs, including Ibuprofen and Toradol (which I now refer to as the 'wonder drug').

Until I got the Toradol the pain was excruciating (even hopped up on Percocets and with mega doses of Ibu), I wouldn't have made it 5 days without it.

 

I'm telling you man, the pain was unbelievable. I am no wimp. I have hurt myself in many ways through the years; broken bones and lost teeth in Rugby, went through a windshield (250 stitches in my face), appendicitis... etc.

 

Nothing compares to a kidney stone.....

I believe you about the pain. My father-in-law had one trying to pass. He wasn't aware of it. My mother-in-law had said that he was acting very strange all evening and that he just couldn't get comfortable. They were getting ready for bed and he suddenly passed out. 

After a trip in an ambulance to the hospital they eventually discovered the stone. When he came to, he had no memory of the previous 2 hours before he had passed out from the pain. A pain I hope I never have to endure....

Worst pain ever. Had one, and it wasn't even big enough to require ultrasound or surgery. Had a burning sensation when I urinated for a couple weeks. Went to my doc, and was asked if I had cheated on my wife or she had cheated on me. I was treated for a few things and sent home. A few days later I'm in the bathroom and all the sudden it feels like if been stabbed in the kidney. I stumble out and get a ride to the ER.... They shoot me up with morphine and toridol, and I was so high I get why people get addicted to that stuff. They gave flomax and some pain killers and sent me home.

I think I passed it on the hospital because it was gone.

Worst pain ever.

 

Agreed. I've had two, and have never experienced anything even close to the level of pain. Ratpak, I can't even imagine having 77...

That sucks... about 4 years ago, I had a 6mm stone get stuck just outside the bladder... they had to go get it.

 

They must have butchered my ureter getting that stone out... it looked like I was pissing red wine afterwards, even with me drinking a ton of water.

 

That first piss the morning after the surgery was something else... if felt like I was pissing razor blades and alcohol and someone had set it on fire. I broke out in a cold sweat it hurt so bad. The pain from that was worse than the kidney stone pain. :/

 

I hope your surgery goes better than mine!

 

FWIW, a friend of mine hooked me up with a few joints that worked a hell of a lot better than any other pain meds they gave me... just sayin'!

 

Good luck!
