HI new here, but im on the UC board. Last Tuesday i had my 3rd stone..the first ones being in 1999 and second in 2002 i believe..never had one since. Anyway was in Vegas woke up at about 9:00 had that all to familer pain in my back, but it had been so many years since i had a stone i thought no way..Anyway ended up at the ER same song and dance went home with Percocets and told to drink tons of water to pass it. I have a 2.7mm stone. So Tuesday night comes and im feeling a lot better, no pain, i must have passed it, so i thought. Wednesday feel great its gone..this is what happened with my other stones, a 10 hour or so ordeal, passed them, all done..Thur morn comes and about 6:30 i get up to go pee and right after heres is that left sided pain again, couldn't believe it.!..drove home from Vegas that day in excruciating pain. Luckily my wife drove and i screamed the whole time. Cant believe i cant pass this stone, at least this size. Go to Urologist and said i might have to have surgery to get it out but says you have a good chance of passing it.. Has anyone had that surgery? laser surgery with the stint? mine inst until Thursday morn and im hoping to god i pass it before. I have been drinking liquids like crazy, lemonade, water..everything to get it to pass and no luck.
