I once stubbed my toe in my old apartment. It hurt for about 30 seconds. :) I have no point. Glad to hear you're drinking Coke again. It is a magic elixir.

You are a tougher man than I. I have passed two kidney stones, and the pain incapacitated me in about 20 minutes.

The best (and only good) thing about kidney stones is that they give you morphine (or hydro-morphone, a synthetic morphine) for the pain. All other painkillers bow before the King Painkiller, Morphine. Oh, and vicodin for a week isn't too bad, either.

Although, I got about 3 times the dose of vicodin when I had my gallstones...


devildog, i'm sure that kidney stones hurt worse than my kidney infection, though i would have thrashed you for saying so at the time.

andy, you crack me up, but you already knew that.


K........... so I have had ....... and I kid you not.. 19 kidney stones since last June... I recall the first few times just hurlin' on the nurses who told me I had to wait to get my drip running........... had lots of lithotripsy and an arsenal of morphine... spent 10 days in house with a self medicating morphine drip! I highly recommend it! I was sending people emails from the hospital with dialogue from whatever I happened to be watching on Hospital TV at the time (how to have a baby, do you have a bladder control issue)... was GREAT fun.


I'm sorry Sarah!!! Pain like that sucks. When I turned 30 I told my wife I was getting old. She told me to knock it off. In a few weeks I was wishing to die, just to not feel kidney stone pain. Worse yet, they had to go in and get it. Using existing openings.

And morphine was like a glass of water to me. Vicodin and Percocet were little better. Demerol is the only thing!


oh that all sounds so painful.

If morphine was like water to you, then it wasn't morphine. Doctors and hospitals only give morphine to patients who REALLY, REALLY, REALLY need it. Morphine is such a good painkiller and muscle relaxant, in sufficient doses, it will make your heart relax so much, it stops beating.

If you've seen Saving Private Ryan, in the scene where Wade, the medic (Giovanni Ribisi, if that helps any) is shot, he is asked what he would like them to do to help him. He responds "I would like a little more morphine, please." Now, if you were paying attention, you notice that Captain Miller and Sergeant First Class Horvath (Toms Hanks and Sizemore, respectively) exchange glances, and Capt. Miller has to tell SFC Horvath "Do it", which Horvath does, reluctantly. Now, why is this important? Because they had already given Wade one morphine syrette, at 10cc Intra-Muscular, and he was asking for 10cc more...which is a lethal dose. To give you an idea of how little 10cc is, medics keep MULTIPLE syrettes in their mouths in cold weather, to keep the morphine liquid. 5 syrettes will fit in the front pocket of your bluejeans, with room to spare, and almost no visible bulge.

Morphine kicks butt, and the only painkiller better than it is WAY more addictive. (Heroin)
