Kidney stones

I was taken by ambulance to Kaiser in California for what turned out to be a kidney stone. The 20 minutes I waited in an examination room for drugs was the longest 20 minutes of my life. It's the only time I've ever begged for anything! Having had several broken bones, 5 abdominal punctures from laparascopic surgery, etc. nothing can compare to the pain of a kidney stone. There are no words to describe it. Glad you are feeling better and hope you never have another stone!

I found these pictures which show my injury, surgery, number of screws, and post-op X-rays:

Those are even the same Steri-Strips as mine.

Unfortunately, those of us who have had kidney stones will answer the following question, "On a scale of 1 to 10 where 10 is the worst pain you have ever felt, how does that broken bone feel?" with the answer: "Oh, about one-half."

Perhaps only burn victims are in more pain.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I am feeling much better!
