    Default Kidney stones

    Cor blimey!.. ever had them? Reckoned to be one of the most painful of gods gifts to mankind kidney stones are small rocks of calcium which get lodged in the kidneys, they range in size but most are between 3-5 mm and they hurt like hell. I am currently "working one out" which has been measured via a CT scan at 4 mm . There is of course only one exit route and it aint pleasant!...I waited in A&E for 4 hours yesterday, what a nightmare, they sent me home with a prescription for naproxen and basically told me to wait for the little fella to make an appearance...Merry bloomin christmas!!

    My late father had them in around 1986 - he had to go to the QMC when he had problems with them, although thinking about it, it might have been gallstones instead.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    I've dealt with patients with kidney stones, I've seen grown men cry in agony with the pain. One patient told me afterwards that he now sympathisers with women in labour as he's never felt pain like it in his life, especially when he was passing it.

    I had a boyfriend that got them. I think it's worse for men.

    Drink plenty of fluids, adding lemon to water is supposed to be good too as a way of preventing them.

    There are a lot of things in life that are worse for men - I think that we get our share of those things which happen to be different to women.
