I get them all the time. I have 3 right now and my Urologist told me I will have them the rest of my life since I do not have a Colon and thereby cannot retain much water.
A few years ago, I had 7 stones and one them had to be blasted out since it was about an inch in diameter. I am on meds for this and need to drink more water.
The first time I had them was over 20 years ago and to pass that out, well that was no fun for a man. Carol Burnett once said that in order for a man to experience what it is like to give birth to a child, he would have to put his lower lip over his head.
Does anyone here on this board have similar issues with Kidney Stones?
