    I hate kidney stones. One the size you have makes me hurt just thinking about it. :#

    They better hook you up with some good drugs afterwards because this is ridiculous. They should have a plaque or something to give you -- this being your 10th!
    Prayers out to you 🙏 I'll be sending positive thoughts your way. 😇

    Wishing you the best. Only two times I saw tears on my fathers face...trying to pass a stone and when his dad died.

    Thanks Rafterman. I can assure you, they are NOT fun

    Update



    JuniorX is gone. Luckily the Dr was able to remove "him" in one piece, so I didn't require stents. Anyone that has had the stents can tell you, they're ALMOST as bad as the stone.

    Thank you all for the kind thoughts and prayers.

    HOPEFULLY this episode is now just a memory, not to be shown in re-run any time soon

    Thanks and I agree wholeheartedly...

    Hopefully my kidneys will get the message too

    Really glad to hear things are looking up for you. I was in pain just thinking about it.
    Tell your kidneys 10 is the limits. It's the law!

    Glad it's gone, and hope the issues you're having get gone ASAP!
    And having had stents on almost ALL my dozen or so procedures, I concur that stents suck hind teat on a boar hog. They poke around in the kidney, and they poke around in the bladder. Removal of the stints are always a thrill ride not to be missed, too. :D These guys that haven't had  the experience of gravel removal or stint removal don't know the fun they've missed! :D:D:D
