Last Saturday while I was installing a second large flat screen in my man cave I got that very familiar pain, otherwise known as my 3rd kidney stone in the past couple of months. Anyway I finished the install, refused to go to the hospital or take any medicine. The medicine always puts me to sleep. We had about 15 people over and cooked a low country boil. We had the Auburn game on the 51" and Alabama on the 55". When the game was over and all the guests left my wife drove me to the hospital. A big Bama win, an Auburn defeat, and a low country boil. All together I'd say a successful weekend. Here's to having a similar weekend minus the kidney stones of course. BTW I intend to enjoy the food this weekend.

If you dreamed you were a sleep and you woke up, would you be awake?
Father has had them through the years and after hearing all his pain, I avoid anything with calcium just in case it is hereditary. Kudos to you for putting priorities in place.
Well you should have used that money to buy some of those tickets Nick was talking about.
Every time my wife doesn't let me go to a game I buy electronics. She's gonna learn sooner of later, if not, the man cave is going to be even more awesome.
One thing for sure, if there's a 100% cure out there, I will never have another. I started running about 4 months ago and I think that possibly hydration might be an issue.

i just had my first ab a year ago....it was terrible.....as i was walking into my house i vomited and passed out.....woke up a min or so later laying head first in the pool.....worst pain ever....until that nice nurse pushed the dilaudid through the iv

Dilaudid is by far the best. Demoral wasn't bad, but morphine sucked, didn't even take the edge off.
for sure demoral just kinda takes the edge off
I've had 4. Last one was 5mm and I actually passed it...absolutely agonizing pain and moved into bladder before I got back to see ER doctor, so no pain meds. Go to follow up appointment and they tell me I have an 8mm in other kidney, which I had surgically removed. Take this advice: Don't drink too much sweet tea! They call the south the "stone belt" fyi.
Morphine is soooo over-rated.....
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
My wife can't stop me if I want to go to a game. She can get in or stay at home.
So how do you know you have these things? Any warning signs before debilitating pain? I saw a program on TV where they put this guy in a large tub of water and used some sort of sound waves that broke up the stones.
I've had 5.I wouldn't wish one on anybody. The absolute most painful one was I had two at one time. I had one on each side. Both stones decided to travel down each track at the same time.I honestly thought my back was in a vise. All I know is whatever they put in my IV was amazing. I don't remember what happened next but my family said I was hilarious
Mine started a couple different ways. Most of the time my back and sides start hurting (lower to midway of the back and side), the other way is a burning sensation as if you have a bladder infection. There are other systems but I'm afraid it would be TMI, but they all end up the same for me and that is the fetal position. Kidney stones are so bad that I wouldn't wish them on Auburn........well maybe a couple.
I'm 27 years old and I've had 8 so far. All of them were 5mm or larger. FML
