besides myself, at least one other person here has had or still has kidney stones. I will protect that persons privacy, and he can come here and tell his story if he wishes. but this morning at or about 7:15, i passed this huge stone. i have been going to my urologist for a couple/three months now, to have several stones blasted out of my kidney (it is the left kidney only that has the stones) . they could not be all done at the same time. i have already (in total) pee'd out about a level teaspoon of stones thus far, some being big, but NOT like this one pictured here. i tried my best to get both side of the stone. one side pic, you can see what looks like a hollowness to it. i felt something coming down the "pipeline" as i call it, but it stopped. as i tried sitting down for my morning coffee, the "stuck stone", reminded me that i have a "digit" inbetwen my legs. it did not hurt as much as you may be thinking, but rest assured, it reminded me several times it wanted to come out, but it just wouldn't... but when it did..... oooooo....weeeeeee...........did it feel good............(that it finally came out.......!!!) hope the pics come out clear enough..... oh yeah, and of course, i have it next to a dime this next pic, i tried to get a measurement. in order to try to avoid shadows, i had to take this pic with the tape measure upside down. it does appear to be a stone of about 1/4" in diameter, but i'll let you decide..... in this one, i tried to line it up the best i can with the lines, does seem to look like a 1/4 " stone...??
