You had me TOTALLY crackin' up!

But. . . I'm sad you're in pain. . . NOT GOOD!

I have one at 4mm and my urologist warned me to stay hydrated. None of these long waterless days in full sun, for Heaven's sake. We found it on a CT scan. It also turns out I have dual piping out of my kidneys... rare but not unheard of. How fun.

I remember as a kid, my Dad had a bad attack of a kidney stone that started to move. He was rolling and groaning terribly on the family couch. I was all alone with him and about 6 years old. I was terrified. Dean, it was clearly about all the man could take. I do sympathize. Fortunately aside from the pain, the ailment is not completely deadly.

Dean,

Hoa Mon, so sorry for your pain. Praying.

Dee ee, when did you break your shoulder and how? Wonder if it was the same shoulder you threw out in JTree a millineum ago when we were playing Haki Sak? It got dislocated and you were on the ground and Dan yanked it back in. Jess wondering if the old injury had to do with your latest one.

Cheers and Blessings to you and Family, lynnie

PS, are you doing the Amjen Tour Mother's Day Weekend. Nomads is hosting a booth on Grand Ave. in Escondio. I will be there or at our store two blocks away. ANYONE from the Taco stop by and I'll treat you to something.

I passed one that felt the size of Columbia Boulder. It was about 15 years ago and I was in Dusy Basin. A friend who was up there last year tells me that on a calm night you can still hear the echo of my screaming.....

I haven't had one thanks to all the beer I've been drinking.

Seriously, many doctors say beer helps both, preventing and dissolving kidney stones (at least in Poland).


This is why I drink copious amounts of beer. It's for medical reasons. Woo-hoo!


6mm, Dean? Holy!!!! heal up, bro. Piss that thing out. Somehow....

I keep waiting for Delhi Dog to post here. He's passed enough to fill a chalk bag. Kidney stone king.

Just had my first one about two months ago. Screaming and writhing in pain for two hours. When I got to the doc's and he jabbed me with some morphine I literally wept.
I have a relative who's a doctor and his advice-

A six pack and a pogo stick!!!!

Good Question...

Been there too, to many times.
I feel for you, and like healyje i keep a drug kit with me. I'm often times out in the middle of nowhere and need to take care of myself.

The last 4 I've delt with on my own, but shoot I sure as sh#t wish I was could have been in the ER with a morphine drip.

I remember I had just reached the summit of the Grand after climbing the Exum with my brother-in-law and his wife when I felt the pain coming on. At the time I had only 1 or 2 previous episodes so I wasn't too sure if it was a stone or not. Man they were freaked, but I just lay there for awhile until I could move and then told them I'd see them at the bottom and booked outa there at as fast a pace as I've ever done.

I have a little collection now of them.
Feels like a bowling ball with spikes squeezing through your gut when it's happening, and I can time the contractions down to the minute. Usually 10 mins of pain, 5-15 mins of reprieve.
I was so disappointed when I saw the first one, it was so small i could barely see the thing.

Drinking plenty of water is about the best you can do.

Though the tarter remedy sounds like it might be worth trying. Thanks for the info.

Cheers

Edit, hah, hah TT you called that!

1 more month brotha!!

VERY GOOD ONE!

It should join the bill in Legg's and my TacoStandReview. . . She's gonna do an interpretive dance based on TFPU and we'll be doing a Village People rendition of TFPU. . . I'm gonna be the Indian, she's gonna be the Cop, TenBee's gonna be the Carpenter and we'll soon be holding auditions for the rest of the cast:

It's always fun to say

TFPU!

Don't you mean centimeter?
You'd be able to see a 6 mm stone progressing down your Johnson!
Yeah, they are a lot of fun...my doctor gave me a screen to pee through, with the hopes of catching the stone. He was delighted when we captured what looked like a grain of sand. Calcium...from my habit of eating 500 mg. orange flavored vitamin C's...

"I'm sorry, but until a baby's head has come out of your vajay-jay twice"




Trust me, Sullly.....I've watched that scene...twice...there is NO way I'd compare the two. I remember exactly what I said when I saw my firstborn's head beginning to crown....."There is NO way that is coming out of there!"

My wife did that both times with zero drugs....and the first one was sunny side up.....

You gals are hardcore....

Hope it's the LAST one you ever have to experience, Cragman. Some people do seem to be more prone to them than others. My husband has only had one in his life, while one of my brothers-in-law has had one every couple of years, it seems.
