Had a really bad night Wednesday and had to go to the Emergency Room for severe pain in my right side just under the rib cage. To make a long story short, I have a kidney stone in the right ureter which was backing urine into the kidney. That caused the pain. When the urine finally got around the stone, the pain went away. Monday I go to get the stone sound blasted (lithotripsy). Anyone had that done? How did it go? Wish me luck.

Grandson had it done a few months ago. Enjoyed his pain pills for a few days and then was fine.
They had to check to be sure they blasted it all and then the body has to get rid of it, why the pain pills were appriciated. They were sucessful.
Good Luck to you, hope it goes as well as his did.

I feel your pain!
That was the cause of my first ambulance ride of my life! Happened at work. I felt like someone had punched me in my back with a bat!
Fortunately I passed the thing and (knock on wood) I haven't had one since.
Good luck.
Chet

Ms Annie, you heading to Saints or ARMC for the procedure? You will do fine I'm sure. I used to work p/t in the ER and on the ambulances at Saints when I was with the PD (and had a REAL job )
Don't worry. The discomfort associated with the procedure is small compared to the pain with the stone.

Spent yesterday sleeping. The nurse gave me i/v morphine about 9AM and the lithotripsy machine did its job. The stone was shattered and I left for home at 1:30 where I slept for the rest of the day and the night. So far, so good. I feel fine. Thanks for all the good wishes.

Great to hear all went well Doggievet. I've never had kidney stones but I have seen people who have. It looks extremely painful. So we are glad it's gone and you are recovering.

Good news that they were able to blast it. My wife used to work in the office of a company here in Florida (the kidney stone capital of the world) that ran portable lithotripsy machines in trailers that the hospitals would hire to come by a few times a week at each location. The design made it so you didn't even have to disrobe, just walk up to the machine and grab the handles and you would be lowered into the treatment position. A little gel as a transfer medium after adjusting you waistband and shirt and a short time later you were done with a quick wipe up of the gel.

Prevention of a reoccuring event is what most people seemed to mess up on. Many people found that a water softener was required at home as part of the prevention plan.

You don't want to do this agian no matter how much fun the new gadgets they use may seem.

Regards,

Neil

I passed two in two days about 4 or 5 years ago. The first one on the way home from a dinner. The second time I went to the emergency room. Passed the second stone while they kept taking x-rays to follow it as it exited. Wow! What pain. Good drugs.

I went to work the next day and only had a few muscle spasms.

Good luck.

Frank
