Default Trying to Maintain a Sense of Humour - OT

So here I sit - passing the second kidney stone in 2 months and feeling generally pretty sorry for myself. I have been trying to knock the little sucker out and went to the gym yesterday to walk the treadmill, which didn't help the stone, but did lift my spirits alot. I have missed 2 workouts and I am so bummed about that. The painkillers help but only so much. So here I sit, surfing the net, drinking my gallons of water and hoping that "this too will pass"

I am sooo glad that my Mom is around to help out with the munchkin!

I'm so sorry to hear you are going through this. Hubby had to pass some and he still ended up in surgery to have it blasted out.

I can relate about missing out on the exercising though. I got something respiratory last thursday and monday was the first time I attempted to exercise again. I'm really wanting to go out and jog but it's still too cold.

I'm soooo sorry that you are going through this horrible, horrible pain. I had a kidney stone about 6 months ago. I told everyone that I know that I would rather have a baby with no meds than have another one of those suckers. Labor was nothing compared to them suckers! Mine was acutally stuck in my uretha(sp) and I had to have it taken out. Good Luck and if you need anyone to vent to I'm here.

Honey I feel your pain! I've had kidney stones 3 times in the past couple of years and have had to have them surgerically removed every time (the last time was when I was backpacking through central america. You wanna scare your parents to death tell them you're having emergency surgery in a developing nation!). For the next few months my dr has me on a male prostate medication, it's susposed to help keep the uretha tubes dialated, so that the remain stones my doc found in my kidneys can pass easier. You should see the looks I get when I get that prescription filled.

Hardatwork, my dr the first time I had kidney stones told me that she had delivered twins without any sort of medication and would rather do that again than pass another kidney stone!

All I can say is drink lots of water, and pee as much as possible. Get those suckers out!

Thanks everyone! Yes very painful but not as bad as the last one so i guess that is the good news!

Shantroy and Hardatwork: I've had one stuck in the urethrea too and I'm really happy that this one seems to be moving (rather slowly) because stuck is waaaay worse. I'm on the Flomax too - my pharma was like "um, this is for you?". Apparently it's supposed to help pass HUGE ones. The worst part is the waiting and wondering what is happening. My doctor said they just treat it as "watchful waiting" unless it is obviously stuck because they usually pass on their own. I have good drugs. Thank the good lord for good drugs.

Oh and Shantroy, I know that our heathcare system is a mess, but I would still rather be operated on here than in a developing country. How scary was that! You know you are in immense pain when you don't care who is ripping the d*** stone out - just get it out!!

YEOW, sorry to hear. My husband had two stones at various times, I know it's beyond painful. Best of luck that it moves on out of there

Oh I feel for you. ......... My hubby had a kidney stone a few months ago and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Hang in there, because like most things - this too shall pass.

I had a nasty stone that wouldn't pass on its own so it had to be removed.

I took it pretty stone-faced, though I did get pretty stoned on my painkillers. He left no stone unturned while they were in there. Unfortunately I got an infection and lost about a stone because I couldn't eat. I could have stoned the doctor. Relief was just a stones throw away once I got on antibiotics though. I told the doctor he's got to have a lot of stones to have that job.

Also kidney stones suck. Feel better!
