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.

Gary,

I've had a couple myself. Incredible pain.
Good to know it's in the bladder now. From this point on its just waiting and praying for it to pass out of your system - the pain is pretty much over now. Just push the water. You need lots of it.

One word of caution for anyone who gets a stone and has to have an IVP test to find out where it's located... Make sure you are not allergic to the dye they use. I had no way of knowing I was allergic when I had my IVP test. It was more frightening than having a stone - and way more dangerous.

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.

Thanks again,

Gary

Glad to see your on the mend!

Just a thought why don't you musical giants make a Kindney Stone Song for the over 40 crowd.

I passed a small stone a few weeks ago, not fun.
