    And a few prayers.I'm going to have a 3cm (golf ball size) kidney stone removed in a few weeks and am a little nervous.Back about seven years ago it was 9mm in dia. and the first attack was very bad.I haven't had any more trouble until two months ago with dull pain.I mentioned it to my Doc who said for me to see a urologist.Well I did and it's got to come out.tom.:crying:

    I hear ya friend.This one will not pass per the doc. (no kidding doc,it the size of a golf ball,duh).They said even if they would ultra-sound it and I could pass it there would be many ,many trips and nobody should be subjected to this discomfort (his words) and I said this is what I was hoping to hear.tom.

    ETA and I thank you for the prayers.tom.

    Nestor,thank you for your well wishes.My Father in Law had these stones and blamed the water for their formation.I asked the doctor if high acid like which caused my gout made the stones.He said no.Acid stones don't show up in x-rays only calcium stones which makes sense to me in that water from the tap has lots of calcium.tom.

    Prayer inbound Tom, I can't even imagine a 3cm stone, dude that is megaforce. Take care of yourself and take it easy after surgery. Slow and easy. Are you going to keep the stone to blast it? I kept my gallstone for that very reason dam bastage stone. Hey at least it's not in your marbles like Eric's. :thumbsup:

    nursetim,I may have it mounted into a necklace! LOL. My best friend nurse chuck will be helping me thru this ordeal.He works at the imaging center where I'll be having the CT scan and blood work done.He also is in constant contact with the Radiologist who will be doing most of this procedure.He also is good friends with said urologist team so I should be carte blanche.tom.:cool:


    ETA and again thank you for the prayers.tom.

    Deputy Tom has some stones! :notworthy:

    Be sure your urologist gives it to you.

    Have a friend and a video camera and a driver.

    Go to a range. A golf range.

    Tee that sucker up and have your friend video you whacking the tarnation out of it. Youtube it. Celebrate.

    Hope all goes well. I certainly feel for you as I have 13 since 1967. Luckily only 2 had to be removed. I was able to pass the others.
