About 5yrs ago I kept having ice pick stabbing pain in my lower left side & found out I had one. Had lithotripsy done & all it did was flatten it. It's lodged in the inner lining of the kidney. Fast forward about a year & I'm in the most excruciating pain of my life...the night before 14hrs of dr appts & tests for my late hubby. This pain was way the hell worse than my childbirth with no meds. Drove myself to the ER. they gave me 2 doses of dilaudid so I was high as a kite. Apparently I passed something, but the CT showed another stone. I asked to see the scan & told them nope.. a piece of the one I already had must've broken of, since it was in the same spot. Nothing since then except some low level nagging pain/discomfort where that one is hanging out.

i had one back in '09 at the age of 30. Mine was only 2mm, felt like i was dying as it made it's way from the kidneys to the bladder (side note...morphine is amazing), but soon as it dropped in the pain was gone. Peeing it out was nothing..i was expecting major pain but felt barely anything different.
and that was for a 2mm size one, i've heard of sizes up to 7mm where surgery was done to get it out

I had a coworker who would drink coke like water. Among other health issues, he would get at least 1 stone a year.

I really wish I didn't read through this thread just now. I feel like I'm going to get a stone any minute now just because I read it, and listening to you guys describe the pain scares me. My dad has passed a few stones over the years. I mainly drink water, milk, and coffee so maybe I will be ok. I never drink sodas and rarely drink sweet tea.

Someone told me one of my coworkers was talking at work one day and literally dropped to his knees and started cussing while peeling his uniform off. It turned out to be kidney stones.

Exact same scenario for me , except I was 21 when it happened. I can't remember a worse pain.

My father, who had a history of kidney stones, passed away last weekend due to kidney failure. Doctors said the multiple cases of stones (2 operations, several more ultrasound treatments) damaged the kidneys. That and old age (87) finally did him in.

Drink plenty of water and take your vitamin D!

Thread revival: have one now. Day 3. Spent the first day in the ER, man it is horrible. Combined with a kidney infection. Feels like a blade in my stomach, a truck on my lower back and a vice on the boys. Unfortunately, it is causing a delay in my moving. So, I am not happy about any of it.

Bummer man sorry to hear. What was the diameter? If its too large to pass or wont move they might do the lithotripsy. Thats what they did for mine. None of mine wanted to move. They just set up camp and started singing kumbaya in there.

Drink more water. Thats what my dr said.

Had a lot, I've had a lithotripsy and passed them the old fashion way, mine are caused by potassium and calcium. I drink no milk and limit my calcium but I still get them.
Passed a 8mm last year, ripped me apart from kidney to .....

Let's see forgot to post specific,

Passed a 6mm at age 16, 4 IVPs.
Passed one around 4mm no help,no medical intervention
Passed another 6, before I kidney got clogged threw up urine for 12 hours in the ER.
3IVPs on that one.
Last year had 5 IVPs, and an ultrasound, then was sent to get the lithroptiprsy, never again.
I've passed 2 since.
Doctor had me on a maintance dose of diareditcs but I work outside and all over and I was peeing every 5 minutes so I quit taking them.

Have not been back to the doctor since the last one and unless I end up back in the ER I never will.

I had 3 my senior year of high school. Two small ones which caused some blood and minor pain, and one big one that I could actually see once it passed. By far the most painful thing I have ever experienced. Was due to my body not processing the calcium I was taking in, luckily I haven't had any issues since but I am not looking forward to the day that I get another one

A lot of this stems from phosphates in brown soda, Pepsi,and Coke and others.

Round 1: Passed a small one a couple days after moving from AZ to OR. Don't know the size but it was small enough to pass, though not pleasantly.
Round 2: Gotta call the doc in the morning. Not as much pain as I was when I had to go to the ER, but now it feels like I'm being shredded. Percocet helps a little bit, but not nearly enough before I am hugging the porcelain. It is definitely making it hard to look for work or do any work on my car.

On a side note, forget typical torture techniques on our enemies, give them all something to cause kidney stones. This sucks.

And something I didn't know and the VA docs didn't say, tea. I did a little research after all this started and I found out that my primary drink can and does cause the formation of stones. Sucks because I mainly drink tea, unflavored water sometimes makes me vomit (weird, I know).
