No, not that kind of stoner.

I mean kidney stoners. Anybody else a sufferer?

I've had my trips to the emergency room, ESWL therapy, closed surgery, and, last year, real surgery in order to fix a deformed kidney and the resulting stones.

I woke up a couple of mornings ago with back pain and bleeding from somewhere men do not like to bleed. So far, I've managed to golf and do the usual weekend chores on only Tylenol, but I'm starting to cast an eye toward my briefcase, where the vicodin lives.

I hope this passes soon. Hand me a PBR, willya?

Been there, done that. Had the electric shock wave therapy on both kidneys, and that did the trick. I had a stone that was stuck, so they put a stent up there and pushed it back into the kidney for a week before the shock wave therapy. I had to walk around for week with a string hanging out of my johnson. Not fun. Made it through the whole thing with only taking one Percoset the whole time, though.

Sorry, but I can say I have not had one yet.

Interesting thread though. Maybe I'll start one Members of The Big "V" Unite for all the guys who've gone under the knife for that procedure.

3 trips to the hospital in the last 8 years with stones. I find the worst part is when they are passing through the kidneys. Dropped me to my knees for a few hours last time. At least until they brought out the good drugs.

A few years ago, a co-worker had a stone problem and they fitted him with "the string." He wasn't happy about it, but was managing...until a few days later when the string vanished! Seems his johnson inhaled that string, snarfed it right up like a piece of spaghetti. And yeah, the doc had to go in after it. Not good.

While I've never had that particular procedure, I have experienced the joy of a catheter insertion, after my surgery for a ruptured appendix. That's not a part of my anatomy I want messed with in a less than loving manner.

Wanna know the worst part? The doc said the stones were caused by canned unagi!
