Will you be sedated for this??? Sounds rather painful if you're awake!

my wife just had this done a couple months ago. She was in pretty bad pain with hers and once they did it, a few days later she was feeling better, but it took a good 10 days for her not to feel sore with it. I wouldn't suggest waiting long if you're going to get the procedure.

Nope. I had a stone and it made it halfway down and got stuck. The went UP to get it.
Was out during procedure, but when I went to the bathroom...I saw the devil. :devil:
