Thanks for the well wishes everyone, and I'm happy to report that most of the pain has now subsided but I'm still a bit weak from the experience. I'm going to take a few days off, during which time I have to go back to the doctor for followups and discuss what's the next step. The stone is somewhere in my bladder at this time, and he said it could pass on its own. If not, it will have to be removed cystiscopicly.
I must say that I'm overwhelmed by the outpouring of well wishes by everyone on this and other forums I frequent. This is obviously a reflection of the kind, caring, wonderful people that make each day a little bit brighter.
