So, lets talk kidney stones..

January 06, 2019 07:22AM
I have 4 in the last two weeks.. and its been pretty dang brutal... I've only had one or two in my whole life, and they went quickly, but now it seems like I'm getting hammered by them.. Anyone do anything in particular - other than drink lotsa water - to avoid them, or help dissolve them etc..?

Dunno about anyone else, but when I get 'em, I'm usually kicking back on the couch and I go from a pain scale of 0 to 100 in about 15 seconds.. Most of the time I can throw down a quart of water and they'll ease up after an hour, or so, but the last one last about 8 hours.. sheesh..

Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
