sadly beer is litsed as one of the things that may promote stone growth. Along with tea and colas.

Oh well i ain't giving up homebrew. i'll just have to drink more water.

So what's on the good list? Doesn't sound like much is left. I used to drink lots of Gatorade during the summer and my Dr. said to give that up if I didn't give up anything! Bad thing is, working outside in the broiling sun a person needs to replace the minerals lost by sweating. Dang if you do & dang if you don't:)

(Knock on wood) I haven't had a stone in about 5 years now and it sure won't hurt my feelings if I never have another. If having babies hurt as bad as passing a stone, then the world's population would soon be zero!

WATER-WATER-WATER-SEX-SEX-SEX Seems like as long as I'm drinking 3+ bottles of water a day, seems to be no prob but as soon as I go a couple of days w/lots of H20 them little f#@!*rs seem to come runnin (12 in 13 yrs). Oh & the sex tell your better half that the doctor said so.......

Well we just had to start a thread about these suckers! Somewhere around 5:00 this A.M., I was headed to the ER with my wife who was in severe pain, yep you guessed it, a stone as big as Boulder Dam! The Dr. said no way she could pass it,so she has an appointment with the Urologist (SP) tomorrow to see what happens next. I figure a Lithotripsy will be on the agenda within the next few days!

Wish us luck!

Thanks Mike, she went to the Dr. today and they will be doing the crushing/basket catch thing tomorrow. Good news is that if she should have to get a Litho done, we now have one in Cullman, no more loooong trips back from Brookwood in B'ham!

PAIN!...
I had 6 of the little buggers 4 yrs ago...had to have stint, lythotripsy, and meds to get rid of mine!...
And July 10th...last month...I had 4 hernias repaired. I am still out and go back to work Aug 25th. I have a patch so big they tattoo'd GOODYEAR across my stomach! lol
I thought i knew pain till I took my first deep breath in recovery!...Getting up to #2 the 1st time ...I wont EVEN go there!

Well it looks like my wife is going to have the Lythotripsy done next Friday here in Cullman. The Dr. did the basket thing and couldn't get it out. Thanks goodness we won't have to go to B'ham to have it done. I had it there in '94(?) and the trip home was a bugger!
