Re: Passing a 2mm stone
Wow kidney stones they are my favorite...i was 18 when i got my first one. I remember laying in bed one morning and the next minute i couldnt walk. I originally thought i pulled a muscle in my lower back when rolling over. I began violently throwing up with the most horrifying pain. Never realizing kidney stones can be passed on remembering my father had kidney stones 3 yrs before. He suggested thats what i probablly was having. I was rushed to the hospital. Barely had the ability to walk then passed out. After many tests, scans, and drugs that day they sent me home...after that i was rushed to the ER 4 more times. The stone was..about 3mm. It was so small they couldnt do anything for me..i was told to drink a lot of water..NO COFFEE, NO SODA, Or ANYTHING THAT WOULD dehydrate me...for every soda i had, i had to drink 3 glasses of water. Finally after 2 MONTHS the little stone passed...mean while straining my pee every single time. i cant tell you how many times i was at the urologist. One night i woke up and took a deep breath and felt this funny movement in my pelvic area and some how i knew that was the stone ..so i went to the bathroom and out came the little guy..it didnt hurt a bit. The stone hurts when it is moving through your tubing and into the uretha. If it is made up of calcium deposits, its very sharp and thats what causes all the pain. ASk your DR. to analize the stone.
