is that the way to avoid them?
Hydration and no soda?
NEVER, EVER, NEVER, DRINK ICED TEA AGAIN !!!!!
I know several people including myself and a urologist that never had a stone again once they gave up iced tea.
You will hear that it's the equivalent pain level of childbirth. As someone here once said, a baby doesn't come out with spurs on..........
why not iced tea?
WOW I remember that, many years ago I had pain, of course 5. am,...could not find a comfortable position, After about an hour I called my dad, a surgeon, told me over the phone that it sounded like a kidney stone drove myself to the hospital 20 minutes away, by the time I got there, the pain was gone. I felt a bit foolish going into the hospital and going through the story, so I sat in the parking lot for a bit...no pain, went to the diner, had breakfast, drove home,showered and went to work..
Iced Tea May Cause Kidney Stones. Summer is high season for drinking iced tea. However, a John Miller, Loyla University Medical Center urologist warns that iced tea can contribute to painful kidney stones because of its high concentration of oxalate, one of the key chemicals that lead to the formation of kidney stones.
Kidney stones can be a real problem, especially if you're one of the folks who are predisposed to them. Up here, they have a portable machine they drive from hospital to hospital, set it up in the parking lot and inside the ultrasound machine pulverizes the stones.
maybe a short hepie flare up?
my friend has those
Thanks a bunch
I do no not and never had HERBIES...
I take it your on Medicare or Medicaide, Different insurances? I spent about 7k the last two years on insurance deductibles for my wife, and about 7k out of my check for my employee health insurance.
I think an ER visit would cost me about $500.
I'm not talking about my old guy insurance. I don't know about spouses since I'm not married.
No, but 2-3 years ago I had this happen for the first time. Same thing, no blood in urine but they didn’t do a ct scan. They thought some tubes got cross in my sack. Had a hot nurse doing an ultra sound on my balls for awhile haha, talk about awkward.
well my deductible is $200 but then there’s 25% coinsurance which I guess means I cover 25% of the bill. They guesstimate that initially so my visit was $450 initially. But if you pay then and not later you get 20% off which knocked it down to $360. But I’d bet a ct scan is 2-3k for the 10 minute thing, and I had 2 yesterday.
I’m guessing by your age and job descriptions you’ve been on the government and old guy insurance for a while
But the cost of private insurance for a single person vs married vs family insurance plans vary quite a bit.
I forgot we are in the Obamacare era. Everything is more expensive.
Hope you get to feeling better real soon!
Take care of yourself. Here's some useful info:
works for me so far..
As far as pain goes, it freaking sucks. I’ve had broken bones, a vasectomy, this was def worse. What sucks it can start as slight discomfort then just got to hell and be a 10 on pain scale before no time.
Sucks it’s gonna cost me a decent amount of money I’d say but knowing it’s just that and not something worse is worth it. Waiting the hour for the ct results sucks since the doctor didn’t think it was a stone. I’m only 33 but my half brother died from colon cancer at 34. So having that in the back of my mind and 2 kids at home, was a little worrisome.
Went to ER last month, CAT showed 6mm stone high up 2 days in hospital then surgery 2 weeks later to bust it up bill was about 30k total my part was right at 3500. Having telecom call next week as a follow up hope to get information on type of stone etc. Definitely don't want to go thru that again.
