Get well soon, Gary. Don't they zap stones with some sort of laser treatment these days? You know, disintegrate them 'in situ' rather than having to pass them?

Rock on, dude.

Renig, I'm not trying to hijack what Gary could answer. But after going thru a kidney stone problem 4 weeks ago I can tell you that they can use sound waves to disintegrate them. Problem is if they are located in a specifc location they cannot use that treatment. In my case they were too close to bones.
