Ok this is the second time I have had a kidney stone,I passed one last year.... a few weeks back I got the pain in the kidneys (Right side) and I passed out with the pain, it only lasted a day but I feared it was a kidney stone and from this morning I have felt like I have needed to pee but cant. (I do pee but only when bladders full)
I can feel the little bugger and it feels like it is in my willy lol.
So any tips on passing the thing?
Iam drinking lots of fluids etc but hate going to the doc's

man, i had one about 20 yrs ago, someone told me that the best way to pass it was to drink a lot of water and hold it until your about to explode! supposidly it makes your urethra swell and become larger so it will flow through. it must have worked, no problems. good luck!

this may seem odd but try masterbating...the thicker fluid may give it a better nudge , make sure you make it an explosive one

I passed a kidney stone about two weeks ago. Some times the pain can be excruciating. This one wasn't too bad, I could feel it at various stages of it's journey, it was uncomfortable. I had friend that had kidney stones so bad the doctors used ultra sound to dissolve them. I don't like doctors, so I tough it out.

My father is always trying techniques based off Taoism. He claims this one worked for him and he's never had a problem since. He was always drinking sodas and developed a stone. So, he tried this technique. Basically, it states to drink a glass of olive oil and then lay on your (I think it is left - not sure about that) side for awhile. He said he did this and then went and sat on the toilet to use the bathroom and when he was done there were all these stones that looked like they had green moss on them in the toilet and he hasn't had a problem since. You could always search google for that. Something like: "taoist olive oil kidney stones" or whatever. Sounds terrible to drink though.

wow thanks for that, just did a search and I found that olive oil and lemon juice in equal parts may break the bugger up.
Cheers for your help all stars for all

I don't find myself in agreement with much you say but I have to tell you I have the utmost sympathy for you on this because I've been there several times. Women who have given birth compare the pain as the same and for me it's a 10 out of 10. It's a killer and I'm really sorry you had to experience it. I felt like death would be a better alternative to the pain. That's how bad it is for those of you who have never experienced it.

The best overall thing to do IMO is to avoid calcium (as in milk) because an analysis usually shows that's what they are made of. Doctor gave me a sieve (like a strainer) that he had me pee into to capture the darned thing. They analyzed it and said that's what it was, pure calcium. Quite literally, my first bout with this drove me off my daily tall glass of milk on to wine. Second, and probably more important is to avoid dehydration. I believe most of us don't drink enough water, so FORCE yourself to drink more, a LOT more when you're going through this, especially. Although I hate to say it because I really don't like it, cranberry juice can help because it can change the acidity for the better, same as in a urinary tract infection, which I've also had. Drink until you have to go every 30 minutes, then keep it up. You need to be sloshing in water until the urine is white, not yellow.

I just learned that Steve Jobs experienced kidney stones. he used to drive every day from Apple to Pixar, a long high-stress drive, when he developed them, so the issue may be partially exercise versus sitting in a static way for long stretches at a time.

Sorry, bud. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. Good luck. report back and tell us how you're doing. I'll subscribe to track your progress.

[color=dodgerblue]I have passed several stones. The pain is comparable to 'back' labor. After experiencing both, I would take labor any day. It is very very painful.

If you are not able to pass urine, you need to go to the hospital. When the stone blocks the ureter, urine gets trapped behind it and the build up can cause kidney damage.

Keep pushing fluids. Hopefully it passes. If it doesn't, please don't be afraid to go to the ER.

I haven't had one in over a year, hoping that they stay away!

Good Luck!

I've had many kidney stones, some that landed me in the hospital, one of em bought me a weeks stay. I multiple stones in each kidney, so when I do feel one start to pass, I drink beer. Yup, it works like a charm and it gives you a good reason to pound a few back! Google it and I'm sure you will find it's a common remedy.

Good luck!

As utterly uncool as it sounds, I'd muddle through it wearing an adult nappy while supping lemon barley water. Least you get to flush yourself out without the rushing to cry on the loo bit.
