Any questions?

The good news: This too shall pass! Maybe tomorrow. Maybe 2-3 weeks. The last time I passed one was in May of 2009. Captured, then shown it to my dad, notorious for passing a many in his life. His response was, "I've never passed one that big before."

Not sure how long I'll be able to stay online while one pill is wearing off and when I'll have to take another. These MF'ers kick ass, clearly seeing why some folks get hooked on drugs. I only take them to ease the pain, and can't wait till I don't need them any longer.

Prescription? Nope! Street: $2.00/per. I don't even know if that's a good price or not, for I didn't do any comparative shopping, since having a friend liaison the connection.

Off now to read and catch up with the latest scuttlebutt after reading my PMs, seeing what's the latest in the World of BitcoinTM.

...Right after I piss a few pinkish drops.

Better yet, why don't I just visit the Shamanic Lodge, Local 42, and pick up some Ayahuasca?

Owwwch!

I've talked to women who've passed kidney stones, and given natural birth. They prefer birth.

Yep! Rarely does labor go on for two weeks.

I did pass tiny stones/calcium deposits yesterday, probably breakage from the much larger stone.

All this is probably due to the eating of way too much salamis and half-cooked bacon, coupled with moving way too much barn wood for a 53 year old man. Three days ago I was showing off, once again, playing "Look at me!" when I realized at the end of loading them oak beams that I should've asked for help or, at the very least, had others load them. Then the drive to deliver them, whereupon I couldn't move a one. Luckily two young whippersnappers were on hand to take care of it. Good guys, they were! Good client, as well.

Regardless, I was way overdue for an attack. Also, normally it's always been my left side. This time it's the right, hoping it's not a gallstone, which I don't believe it is, though I've never had an issue with them before, thus self-treating it as a kidney stone. Pretty smart of me playing doctor, eh?

I'm not sure, from what I heard, I think you can get them "kidney stones" lazer removed. If you have insurance coverage, do some research. Might help you out, rather being in such pain.

Self-employer, thus opted to be non-insured. Stubborn like my old man was. Deal with the pain, taking over-the-curb meds, but if it becomes too unbearable, seek out a duck (or something like that).

No laser removal for kidney stones. Typically ultrasound smashing them up if they are too big to pass, but passing them is the only way. Had them twice before. Yeah, they suck ass. Are you still going to try to make it to the Bitcoin Conference next weekend? Let me know and I'll hook you up with some semi-expired perkaset from my last kidney stone attack  Grin

No laser removal for kidney stones.

http://www.ocurology.com/stones.html

3.  Endoscopic treatment (ureteroscopy, with or without laser stone fragmentation):  A urologist can look inside the bladder and all the way up to the kidney with a small scope and either remove the stone or break it up with a laser and remove the pieces.  It is minimally invasive.  There is no incision as the instruments go through the patient's existing "plumbing." Patients can go home the same day.  In experienced hands, the stone free rate is 90-95% for stones in the ureter.  The stone free rate is 80-90% for stones in the kidney depending on size and location.

Well, laser break it up, and then remove them, would seem easier to do than passing them.

Well I stand corrected. I wonder how much that is compared to the ultrasound method?

It's Sire!!! Unless you're some eliterate serf, or worse, an e hoarder.  Roll Eyes

In the last few hours I picked up a cough, not sure if it's due to the immune system going down from taking the V's. Either way, it only hurts when I cough. I'm not sure what's worse: 4 days without porn or 3 days without BT. I'm sure there's some study suggesting the former's fine health wise, but no Bitcoin? That's akin to a smoothie, sans a butterfly affixed onto an umbrella inside a chilled glass.

Shit... I understand this.  Runs in my family hardcore.  I've been getting them since I was 17.  My first attack was at 17. Saw a doctor for it who golf me how uncommon it was at my age.  At the time the blame was set on the city water supply.  I started drinkin bottled water then had a HUGE attack st 23. It all but crippled me for a few days.  Nothing felt good not even pain killers. Pissed a nice pink color for about a week before the stone passed.  When it did I noticed it has shattered and become like a small claw. Had a hook .. sucked . Horrid shit. Your dick hates you when that shit happens.

Try drinking more water and throw away your salt shaker. I had one small stone and that was enough to make me give up on salt and drink a ton of water every day. They are extra painful for me because the tube they have to travel down is really long.  Wink

Does coffee with cream and extra sugar = water?

Less salt! Interesting!

During the 70's when my dad had to go to the hospital for them, he emerged with horror stories. The insertion of a catheter, a crusher, and...wait for it...a camera, and I'm not talking about the micro ones we have today, all through the opening of an uncircumcised penis.

He also said that the medication of choice was beer, served to him in the hospital.

Salt suggestion depends on the types of stones you're getting. If they are uric acid stones, you're proper fucked, and there not much that can help.
If you are getting calcium stones, then yes, reduce your salt and/or increase your water intake. Reason: your body dumps all fluid into your kidneys, which then filter it and try to figure out what to keep and what to piss away. Like transactions with various fees and coin ages, the various fluid components that kidneys decide to keep have different priorities. Kidneys know that water, salt, and calcium are important, but water and salt have much higher priorities than calcium (which is a cheap fuck that never pays any mining fees). So, when the kidneys get a lot of salt, they concentrate on reclaiming that first, and don't have enough room in the liquid reclaiming block to include all the calcium. So calcium builds up, and you get a stone. Solution is to eat less salt so the free-transaction calcium gets included, or drink more water to increase the size of the reclaiming block, or reduce free transaction calcium, though that last one may not be a good idea when you are an old fuck with brittle bones.

Perhaps time to cash in a few coins from the Bit-stash and pay a private hospital to remove the offending stones?

I strongly recommend picking up a Reverse Osmosis water filter, that's about as powerful as you can get for home solutions. Drinking pure water helps with all health ailments really.

Nice explanation Rassah, thanks!

Very funny!

Hello, Boussac? I like to have some of my coins back, for... Hello! Boussac. You there? Hellooo! Looks like I'm still on his ignore list. Can't wait till July where EVERYBODY gets their coins back without one iota of an issue.

I did pass tiny stones/calcium deposits twice. First time the pain was terrible. In Emergencies they thought it was a stroke (I was vomiting and almost collapsed of the pain). Later told me may be I was treated by very young doctors... It seems it is really easy to prescribe  Tongue

Good luck!
