First Kidney Stones and Stent

I got a nagging pain in my abdomen about six (6) weeks ago... But it passed in about 40 minutes. It wasn't terrible.


A few days later, however, I started peeing blood. I went to the doctor and found out it was two kidney stones. Both small, 3mm.

One was caught in the UVJ near my bladder and the other hadn't passed yet. The second decided to drop on week 6 and stacked on top of the other kidney stone.

I went to the ER with the absolute worst pain I've ever had. They scheduled me for lithotripsy. I had the surgery and they placed a stent in my left side. This has been worse than having the stone caught for five (5) weeks.

Percocet doesn't work. Nsaids helped more than the pain meds. My wife doesn't understand how I am in such miserable pain. I don't get it either. I have four (4) more days of dealing with this pain and hopefully I can get back to normalcy.
