O M G,
The Pain
Had a few,
thankfully, years ago.
Mine were calcium, from taking supplements that were supposed to help my back.
One I recovered was about the size of a match head,
looked like a piece of instant coffee
Emergency doc Would Not give anything for pain.
I avoid anything that says Extra Calcium,
and Tea.
My Sympathies to anyone that gets a stone.

I've got prostate stones. They don't get passed. They tend to harbor bacteria causing sporadic infections. Sometimes my "boys" feel like very painful Christmas ornaments that are gonna break with any wrong move... Sitting in the docs office right now. Hoping for a solution soon.

I had a kidney stone that was lodged in my left kidney. It caused constant infections. Through some testing (retrograde pylogram) the stone was discovered. I went to the University of Wisconsin in Madison to have it removed and the pocket cauterized shut. They removed it with a (at that time) new procedure where they went through your back into the kidney with a scope. Never had another problem since. And was told I wouldn't since they closed the pocket where the stone formed. The recovery was much easier than the surgery recommended locally. I was a newly single parent and couldn't spare much time being laid up. The very worst part was the stent put in place for a month from kidney to bladder. It bothered the heck out of me and was very uncomfortable constantly.

Come to find out I have a Kidney stone. I have a high tolerance for pain, but that was like nothing I have ever felt.
The fighting hole doctor is in:
MORPHINE, demand the best until that SOB passes. During my time working in the ER, I haven't seen happier patients

morphine is good but doesn't completely take care of the pain. There's a pill they gave me That's usually used for women with a UTI and was made specifically fot problems down there...that worked better than anything.

This would be what you are talking about. Commonly called Pyridium.

Jeeeze, had kidney stones in the early 80's through the mid 90's or so. They gave me morphine but for some reason Vicodin with Toradol worked better. Finally had a large one get stuck in right ureter and had to have a lithotripsy to have it busted up. Waited a month for that traveling lithotripsy trailer to show up to have the procedure done. During that time, even though it did quell the pain, I grew to really hate Vicodin and it's side effects.

Vicodin is evil!

I don't like it either, an itchy face and makes it to where I can't sleep

Supposedly taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar a day can help dissolve them. I've read that mineral water can contribute to the formation of stones as well.
