Surgery tomorrow

Wish me luck, or say a prayer. Brutal kidney stone is being forcibly evicted tomorrow. Not the greatest experience of my life, but one I learned from. Stay hydrated out there guys, no need to find yourself in this situation.

Thank you music  :)
The procedure could've gone worse, but also could have gone better. He didn't find the stone, so it's still in there somewhere and I still get to go through the rigors of recovery.

When they take my stent out in a couple weeks he'll check again for the stone. This kidney stone has really been a jerk!

Well had another surgery on Mon. They went all the way up into my kidney and still the stone is I either a) passed it after the first surgery and didn't notice due to the pain I was experiencing from recovery, or it's under my ureter membrane-wall, in which case it won't cause any more problems.

So I am cautiously optimistic that all is well. But since it is still a big Question Mark, I can't have certainty that this horrid little bugger is truly gone.

I will go in next week for stent removal and CT scan to see if it's still in there.

Sounds like a horrid thing to endure. I remember hearing about a procedure a number of years back where they would use ultra sound to break up stones small enough to pass.

Yeah, that's shock-wave lithotripsy. That's definately one way to do it! Luckily (or perhaps unluckily) that is not the route my doctor chose.
