Todd H Passed one a couple of years ago. Hit me in the middle of the night. Sat up all night thinking it was just something I ate. After about six hours of dealing with the incredible pain I finally went to the hospital. Took me a whole day to pass that son of a gun. Thank goodness for pain killers.

okie41 I passed a white star about 10 years ago lots of pain. And a black one 6 years ago. black one just ploped in to toilet stool. No pain both about 1/16 diameter.

Cdwright They are crazy. Men's Health did a sorry on them a while back. Stated there are 14+ different kinds and passing one is on par with child birth.

Ncjeep2005 Kidney stones are terrible and the stent they put in is anywhere near good also. I had one in for a little over a week after surgery and was told to pull it out myself at home! Needless to say pulling out two feet of tubing with no pain meds took six hours feel like I was in a horror flick!

She's a real trooper. Wouldn't let me not swim. She sat and counted for me for the entire 76 minutes it took to swim. I'm lucky to have her.

KC_Hawker I tried that gout diet once I was diagnosed with it. My uric acid level never got to normal. What was do funny was my mother in law at the time, kept harassing me about how it was all my fault and my poor food choices. I didn't eat out then, and I worked through lunch every day. She was the one who cooked for our family and we all ate the same thing, and I was the only one with issues. When I asked her tho explain how I ate differently, she had no answer....

I honestly believe some things simply are heredity or damaged caused earlier in life. Not everything can be fixed by diet and or exercise.

tomthbomb This sounds crazy.

I had a job I hated and had stones every year or so.

Changed jobs, professions actually, and haven't had one in 23 years.

Go figure.

Y-Guy I hear ya, and I don't follow it completely but I did review it and decide to modify some things. I still eat fresh asparagus and some other items on the list, but it had some good tips and advice. My smoker would chase me down if I didn't keep cooking brisket, ribs and pork. Like everything in life it's about moderation, except the water. Good luck!

Dillon152 Wow that diet looks brutal... I love eating dead animals! AND my favorite 2 vegetables are mushrooms and asparagus... Which apparently are a no no... This is seriously going to be a huge 180 change for me. thanks for all the info guys... I go back to the urologist on the 31st to get another CT and decide the path forward... At least i got some good pain meds, still rather have a big IPA right now.
07-25-2013 06:08 PM
Y-Guy I credit dropping some weight, and sadly beer. But also I really upped my intake of water, I still enjoy a soda but only after I down a couple 16oz bottles of water, I try to drink a minimum of 100oz of water a day.

I also tried to watch out for high fructos corn syrup, which is a lot harder then you may think. I had read this from the mayo clinc diet, "he only carbohydrate known to increase uric acid. It is best to avoid beverages sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup."

I just take it as they come. I'm not currently seeing a urologist consistently.

Yep... This morning. I have another stuck in my right kidney (about 7MM) according to the CT scan I had a month and a half ago.

I haven't had a Gout or Kidney Stone in 5 years and hoping it stays that way. I've also kissed off the amount beer I used to enjoy too.

On the bright side, discovering hyperuricemia now and treating it will not only prevent new stones, it can prevent gout attacks which will also ruin your day.
