Last Wednesday I underwent a painful experience: a kidney stone. It hurt as much as my attack of appendicitis in 1982, the most physically painful thing I’ve been through. I managed to drive myself to the ER, where I was diagnosed, sedated, CATscanned, prescribed to and released.
Hours later, everything came out okay. (Whew.) You wouldn’t think a little fleck like that could cause so much discomfort.
Anyone want to share their own kidney stone experience? How would you describe the pain, and to what would you compare it?
