International Kidney Stones

Ive had them three times. Twice in UK once in Germany. Every time blue lighted in ambulance. Twice had S stent fitted between Kidney and bladder. The stent caused me as much grief as the stones. Twice surgically removed and the last one with pain killers and fluids passed naturally. Based on pain, I expected a stone the size of a house brick but it was tiny !!

There was an pleasant side effect from the pain killers though! Codein based. When I "eventually! had a crap the house brick finally and painfully came onto the scene!!

On the first one the Nurse told me she had given birth to three kids and had one kidney stone. She said having kids was easier and less painful.

I wish you luck. The only upside is when you finally get rid of the stone, the relief is just bloody fantastic!

I stopped drinking sodas in October, cold turkey... switched to strictly water with a drink additive, or unsweet tea with no additives, and only a couple of those a week at that.
(Drank almost 5 cases of 16.9 ounce Aquafina water in January alone...32 bottles to a case.)
I've only had 2 cups of black coffee since January 17th.

Before October, was abusing 20 ounce Blue Mountain Dew, Cream&Sugar Coffee 8 to 14 cups a day, Sweet Tea, Starbucks Mocha Canned Energy Coffee, and 5 hour energy drinks.

Today was first kidney stone ever.
You stopped drinking all of that stuff and NOW you have a kidney stone. Coincidence? You decide.

From what I understand, Tea (sweet or unsweet) is about the worst thing out there for kidney stones.

Try eating as many apples a day as possible, at least three but 6 or 7 is better Google it. the fiber will help the bricks as an added bonus.

As someone who has passed 25 to 30 of the stones over the last 25 years (one as big as a blackeye pea -- at home), ask your doc for some Toradol (Ketorolac)!!! It helps with the pain, but mostly helps the urethra relax / dilate and you'll be able to pass the stone easier and faster!!

I only went to the ER a couple of times and they gave me the meds and sent me home. got the doc to prescribe the toradol and crrried with me where ever I went.

I finally found the root cause and have not had an attack for over 5 years.

Don't stones usually come from too much calcium?

Most stones are calcium. Mine were made from too much uric acid (the same thing that causes gout). I now take Allopurinol, it reduces the amount of uric acid that your body produces.

well, at 3:30am I got rid of that damned thing!
Saturday at 1:00am until 7:00am, I wanted to die.
The whole rest of the week was pretty uneventful.... just glad it didn't take months

man, with the kind of pain that thing caused.... I was expecting some kind of big bang at the end.... didn't happen
