I had my son spend the night for Christmas eve since he has to be home in the morning.

Woke up this morning in major pain and went to the emergency.

Spent all day there, 5 mm kidney stone to pass now.

Son had to go home, missed all day with him and his gifts.

And the worst my yet to come, hope everyone has a good weekend.

5mm stones usually need some help to pass. Sorry.

They told me I could stay overnight or just go home and drink plenty of water.

I have pain pills to help out, think I'll end up back there?

Sorry to hear it. I was going to post "this too, shall pass" but thought better of it.

You've got this -- it's memorable.

You are in a grey area. Stones up to 4mm usually pass spontaneously. 6mm stones usually don't.

Good luck. I wouldn't hesitate to go back if your pain is uncontrolled.

I'm with the doctor Adam. That pain get's really bad I would head to emergency for an IV of some good pain killers.

I've probably had 60-70 kidney stones since 1995.

The first one you get, you think you're dying.

I was in the middle of Wyoming when I got my first one and thought I was done for. I went to some clinic in the middle of nowhere where some hippie doc told me 'he was giving me the good stuff' and gave me an IV of Demerol or Dilaudid and he was right.

They are still painful, but it helps when you know what they are.

I've only had to have lithotripsy once and have only been to the ER for them half a dozen times, as I usually prefer to gut them out at home.

The worst was a 10mm stone. I was scheduled to have them go up with some instrument through my cock to remove it and a few days before I was to have that done, I somehow broke it up enough to piss it out. It got stuck in my cock on the way out and I had to drive back from Cleveland and it was a 2.5 hour drive where it felt like I had a sand burr in my penis and it was tough to sit down.

I finally passed the stone and took it in to my Urologist who had never seen a stone passed that big on its own.

Percocets help to take the edge off the pain. Get it from the ureter into the bladder and you will be ok and the worst will be over.

Drink lots of water and see if they will give you a script for Flomax, which will help relax the ureter and increase urine flow.

I passed a couple about 10 years ago. I didnt have health insurance, so I didnt bother going to the hospital. Its a religious experience and I finally passed out after hours of extreme discomfort. The good news is that when its finally over, you feel so f-in good just cuz you arent in pain.

Forgot to mention in the first post... some of its hereditary, and some of its diet related. I think after this you will be HIGHLY motivated to not repeat it and alter your diet.

Worst. Thread. Ever.

PosterX: "Oh, I was on a train from Moscow to Madrid riding on a bed of nails when it hit. It felt like someone jamming an icepick in my genitalia. I couldnt make the pain cease, so I asked the guy in my section who had a full piercing kit to pierce every sensitive part of my body over and over again until we got somewhere that I could get some pain meds. So I ended up with 35 nipple rings on each nipple (including my third nipple...and the mutant fourth nipple...and its little brother "halfsy"). You dont even want to know what else was pierced.

So, this guy walks in and says he's a holistic practitioner, so I'm like...do your thing bro. So he reaches in his bag and pulls out what look like a foot-long set of needly tweezers. In they go. After about 12 hours of jabbing, the guy finally gives up. Then, about 15 minutes from Madrid, I felt an overwhelming urge to pee and I passed it."

It may not. I had a 15 mm one and they ended up having to do 2 laser poundings on it and then surgery. I'm so sorry you missed out on Christmas Eve with your son.

I had them stick the camera up my thing at the urologist before. Is it more painful than that?

Well it's Christmas morning and nothing, just in more pain but I was able to sleep last night.

I'll give it today then I'm headed back.

5mm stones usually need some help to pass. Sorry.

Hopefully they started alpha-blockers - not only do they improve pain but the pass rates increase dramatically.

that last 1 percent is easy. it the 99 percent leading up to it that'll kill ya.

Sorry to hear about this man, I hope you and yours enjoyed the holidays even with your stones.

I've always wondered if I will get kidney stones somewhere down the road since I have a kidney disease, I certainly hope not. I think most people, regardless, at some point in time do pass one or two.

Thanks man, still at home and it hasn't passed, might be headed back to the hospital for some help.

Are you in pain?

Sometimes they take several days to pass.

No major pain because I'm on Norco's, we'll see what happens in the next 24 hours.

I would hate to miss the game.

Keep drinking lots of water....you may pass it on your own.

It's not a kidney stone, but both my brothers are home for Christmas, and they both went out to the bars on Christmas Eve. I dropped them off, they knew to call me. They walked home.

My youngest brother comes in, strips down and crashes on the couch. I ask him hey, where is Nick? The answer I get is leave it alone. So I am like...well thats odd. A few minutes later my mom comes in and says maybe I should take a run into town and see if I can find Nick. I get dressed, pull out of the driveway, hang a right and see my brother. Apparently when they walked home, Tim went right, Nick went left and attempted to enter my neighbors house. Neighbor tells him wrong house, and her dogs start barking, and my brother is offended by this, and starts to curse out the neighbor. Really nasty things, but funny in an odd way. I get him in the car, back to the driveway (after placating the neighbor...) and he is sitting in the backseat, and says "I love you, man. You...you are a good guy. I love good guys."

Family.

I have been since I got home, I've been pissing like normal.

Is Norco the only thing you are taking? Like Kappys said, there are additional medications like Flomax that can increase your chances of spontaneous passage and reduce the need for narcotics. The other thing to keep in mind is that you want to capture that stone and have it analyzed. You might be able to prevent any further stones with diet / medications, depending on the composition.

Suck it up, girley-man. Your Fuhrer, The Governator, would eject that stone a world record distance. You have to look at this in a more positive manner. ;)

Very sorry to hear of this Adam, hope everything turns out okay for you.

Keep in mind it could always be worse, you could have a stricture to go with the stones...
