Re: kidney stone story
Ok so on 3/26 I go back to get the stone lasered. I wake up expecting the very worst and here comes my wife down the hallway beaming/smiling. She tells me the urologist said that he could no longer find the stone,took x rays and couldnt find it anywhere(said there was an extreme remote chance it went up back into my kidney somehow but said that was highly unlikely). He said that from where I had the stent put in a week earlier(the stent causes you to have to go A LOT) the harder flow caused the stone to disolve on its own. Apparently there are different types of stone and said this was the easiest kind to break up. He took the stent out while I was under so I didnt even have to go back for a followup. I had spent weeks hearing horrific pain stories and looking up youtube videos that I shouldn't have watched. I consider myself very lucky.
