    Glad you are home. Hope the other stone passes "easily" (if that is possible). I'll certainly keep you in my prayers.

    Good luck with that. My dad had a kidney stone years ago and I still remember the look on his face. Here's to a speedy recovery.

    Ouch! Many years ago, my dad also had a couple. It did not seem like a pleasant experience. :( Get well soon.

    Kidney-stones and I go back a long way. I have had to give up all calcium-rich edibles (milk, tums, enriched-with-calcium foods), rarely drink pop and drink more pure water than alchohol. I have added pure-cranberry juice to my morning sip and have cut back on coffee significantly (one mug a day at most) ...

    The small 1mm stones don't bother me any more (1/16th of an inch) - it is the 5mm stones (3/16") that bug me - especially when they get wedged half-way down the final-mile :gaah:

    One of my coworkers has chronic stones also. They have worked on her diet to no avail.

    I think she is one of the reasons I have such low tolerance for the Village Idiots next door, aka Stepdaughter and Son in law. SD gets a disability check from military for PTSD (was a labor and delivery and nursery tech for goodness sake, declared unfit for overseas within 6 months of enlisting). Then she went through social security disability for headaches. And got it.
    Yet I see my friend working with kidney stones so bad she is practically puking from the pain. Same with her migraines, which don't seem to be touched by any medicines they have tired.

    My hats off to any of you that suffer through kidney stones and keep on going.

    Hope it passes while you are on meds. I had one about 15 years ago, it was actually this size . when it passed under morphine, felt like the size of a VW bug :eek: I wanted to keep it as a momento but the nurse just laughed and flushed it down the drain.
