They are teh suck.

This is my my second one and they've been in the past 3 years

The pain is horrible. Luckily Urgent Care got me in quickly and I was able to get pain killers within about an hour

On the bright side, I'm home sick today on pills so I can post all I want! ;)

A little gem like this is currently tearing through my organs

Yeah once you get one you're in the club for life.

Sucks.

Really inconvenient too! I had to cancel everything for today.

I knew when the pain got worse this morning it was one.

I'm sorry to hear it Boo...been there, don't that.

first time I ever had one I went from feeling fine to being doubled over in pain, sweating like crazy in about 10 minutes! First time in I don't know how long that I was in so much pain I wanted to vomit. Went to emerg....got hit up with with some major pain killers than managed to at least numb the pain for a while and some anti inflammatories that seemed to help. Within a few hours, I was feeling ok. Worst part of it all is I don't think I ever did pass it so it's still sitting in the kidney, waiting to strike again...or, hopefully, it broke up and fuged off!!!!

fluids, fluids and more fluids! Cranberry is supposed to help minimize them!

Good luck

Wifey's had them twice. Said they were worse than birth. Worse than birth for her meant worse than pushing for almost 12 hours, eventually having her abdomen sliced open, her entrails piled up on her belly, having my son pulled from her womb, vomiting on the DR floor, and having everything returned to her gut and being sewn up.

You're welcome for the visual, but I do pity the pain you are/were going through!

Get well soon!

An older fella told me he had them and his doc said (despite mmmbeans good advice to avoid them) to get a six pack of the old Cokes in 8oz bottles and drink them all in one sitting.

Something about the carbonation in those bottled drinks gets the stones moving, opens up the narrow urethra and let's them pass. Good luck.
