My sister has suffered from kidney stones for a long time. I remember her having to strain her pee and she showed me one that she passed and caught in the strainer. I looked at this little tiny crystal and couldn’t imagine how that could be worse than childbirth. Well, now I understand. I was at urgent care this morning with a horrible pain on my side. Luckily, they saw me very quickly and after a x-ray and urine sample, they confirmed that I’m passing a kidney stone. Lortab has been my friend today. They don’t really give you a time frame on this whole passing a kidney stone thing. I hope to be on a tryptophan high, not a Lortab high, by Thursday. Any advice, suggestions and prayers are welcome!
