Kidney stones

Recommended Posts

Yesterday when I woke up I was in unbelievable pain , I'm about to be 26 in couple days and this second time I have had them in my life already . I was around 17-18 when I got them the first time, first time I literally thought I was dying. This time I knew what it was so it wasn't as scary , but just as painful . I wouldn't wish this pain on nobody !!! I called the hospital and they said they really don't do anything beside pain medicine really , I have been using a heat pad and lying around a lot and drinking a good amount of water . Anybody else had kidney stone problems , and what do you do for pain and to get them out faster ??

I had my fist one at 23 or so and have had many in the ten years since. I went to the er the first time and they gave me an iv and morphine and I went home and passed it. Now when I get them I just drink a lot of water, fruit juice, or beer and take a Vicodin if it gets real bad. I don't think there is much else to do.

Never had them but I've seen a couple grown men break down and cry like babies from them. Must be unbelievably painful. I'd take the pain meds, from what I understand most of the pass naturally. Drink a lot of water I'd guess.

I had one last fall that was too big (7mm)to pass and persisted (off and on) for about two months. Vicodin and percoset were essentially useless. There are a couple of procedures they will do in cases like this, but they seem reluctant to use them. Mine finally broke up when I took an herb called Chanca Piedra. It might have been a coincidence, but soon after taking it, the stone broke up and I passed the various pieces within two days. Good luck with this.

I've had 12 I believe, and 2 surgeries. My last one I told the urologist I didn't want to go to the ER and he said tough spit. He said if the stone is completely blocking the passage of the kidney the kidney could fail. So as I wait for the next one, I will always go to the ER for a CAT scan or sonogram for my own peace of mind. Stones suck.

Yeah, most of us have coffee IV drips going. Need it for the long tours.

I've cut back since my Navy days, now that I can sleep regularly.

I tried the 5 hour energy stuff and various energy drinks, but they were pretty terrible. I drink 3 pots a day on average I would say.

Yeah, I used to be there. It was free in the Navy. All you could drink, 24/7. Always drank it black too. Now when I drink a cup I put cream in it and it's usually some fancy crap.

Had kidney stones once, 7 years ago... wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I haven't changed my diet, I drink more alcohol and coffee now so hopefully it was a one time thing.

Alright guys thanks for the help, at least I know I'm not alone .lol. This sucker still hasn't passed and I know I passed a couple small pieces but , I can feel it moving around but it isn't as pain full as the first day . It is still uncomfortable as heck. That's funny Sean because that's what I've said sense the first time got them , wouldn't wish them on even my worst enemy . I only usually drink once a week , maybe lil bit more beer will help.smh. They told the first time to much sugar did it , I used to drink around a gallon of tea a day through out my 9-5 on the job site. My GF also did a lil research and found out that once you get them a first time you are more than likely to get them again , and it would be more than likely within 10 years .

High caffeine intake like this (and the 3 pots of coffee :eektf:) will definitely dehydrate you and predispose to kidney stones. No doubt the sweltering heat the past few weeks played a role in this stone as well. HYDRATION is your best defense. Drink lots of water!

In general, you can neutralize a lot of the negative effects of coffee/tea/soda just by drinking a LOT of water a day.

    • If you think trading Villar for scraps is a good idea (which is the same thing as "cash dumping" Jim Johnson, btw), then non-tendering him really isn't a big leap from there and it likely has the same end result. My point in all of this has been that non-tendering Villar to save money isn't some preposterous outcome. It's very defensible, and it's possible that no other team wants to touch him at his arb-salary while giving up anything of potential future value in return.
    • I think Luke's pretty high on Cumberland.  But other than that I generally agree with your take.
    • Major leagues definitely needs the minor leagues.  Players don't go from college straight to MLB.  Scrimmages are not going to make you major league ready.  It would cost them even more money to have games without fans. Plus how much would it cost to shuttle players back  and forth from Florida to say Detroit?   I think you are truly under estimating the value minor league baseball provides to MLB. I think this is all about the lawsuit from minor league players saying they are being paid below minimum wage.  I guess a simpler solution is lower the amount of bonuses you pay drafted players and increase salaries.  That would make the pay more equitable.  And provide housing for the players.  And cater their food.     
    • I hate to ruin this guy’s narrative, but Kevin Goldstein is hardly one of the “young finance and Wall Street bros.”    I don’t know exactly how old he is, but he’s got a 21-year old son, and so far as I know, he has no background on Wall Street or finance, having previously been a long-standing scouting guru for Baseball Prospectus.   And, he didn’t “immediately” send out his email after getting hired; he’d been working for the Astros for 5 years at that point.   
    • Just based on the eye test, this is the best team in football.  They are a more complete team than anyone else.  You do worry about Jackson getting injured, but I think every player other than Brady (somehow, in spite of his middle age) is susceptible to injury at any given time.  Just looking at the schedule, I think the Ravens will get the 2 seed.  It isn't that they can't win their last 6, because they can.  I just don't think New England is losing any more games.  The Patriots are not the Patriots of old and their final 15-1 record will be more indicative of their fortunate scheduling (having Dallas and KC at home helps a lot, as does 6 games against a pathetic division).  The Chiefs are not beating the Ravens twice, especially if the game is in Baltimore.  And no other AFC team is capable of winning in New England in January.  So I think it comes down to yet another Ravens-Patriots showdown in Mass.  The good news is this may be the only franchise not scared of the Patriots "aura and mystique," but they will have to beat them twice.  Hard to do. 
    • So baseball want in increase their fanbase and tweak the game, and keep current fans, bring back old fans, and attract new fans. So you go and screw with everybody minor league system.  
    • My granddaddy shot a 72 on his 72nd birthday. I shot a 60 back on my 60th, those rotating ducks was no match for me.
