I've had 2 pass my first was nearly 5mm. It was the worst thing ever, no position what so ever eased the pain...it felt like like my testicles were
being jumped on like one of those bouncy castles full of kids, I was running hot and cold flashes every 5 seconds, vomiting but feeling dehydrated,
and feeling like I was going to urinate all over myself but couldn't go. Every woman I've talked to said they would take natural child birth over a
kidney stone any day that have had/done both. I also had a large bladder stone that feels like a stun gun/lightning bolt of electricity right on your
butt sphincter out of no where.
My college professor at the time said the pain killers didn't work for him either; he said the only thing that works for him is some type of
injection they give for some MRI's.
So after the first one; I swore off soft drinks the urologist suggested sweet tea and sports drinks. 6 months later I was about to graduate, we had a
week before exams off. I had another one show up 4 days from exams, checked myself in the hospital, iv after iv of fluids and pain killers for 3 days
no stone. I said I know I didn't pass it but I can't stay in here I have exams and right after exams...I'm already packed to move out of state. So
I got checked out; oxycontin and flomax scrip in hand. Do exams and now have to drive 12 hours with my packed stuff to my home state. I only had a
scrip for 8 oxycontins so after 1 day tied loose ends and exam prep 2 days of exams and 3 hours into my drive no more pain meds it all came
back...only 9 more hours drive through the night into early morning writhing in pain. If I had a revolver it would have been a welcomed option for a
First thing I do is drive to the emergency room when I got into town, the RN whispered to me "next time go buy a case of beer and keep pounding them
til falling down drunk; it'll be gone before you know it." I took my new pain script by all this time the stone was too far and too wedged to do
anything but wait and pass it. I got a gallon of water and a 12 pack and went to my parents house sat and started pounding one beer one glass of
water...5 cans in I passed it 9.5mm.
Went to the new urologist, and told him the history of my stones; he said well you have 4 more waiting and a smaller one that might build or just
pass...Shocked I was like no no no how can this be? I quit drinking soda over 6 months ago and drank nothing but sports drinks and tea like my last
urologist suggested. He got a concerned look on his face, and he said your urologist told you to drink this stuff? I said yes sir; he said sports
drinks, and tea are the leading causes of kidney stones. It struck me later the first urologist only makes money if he has patients...so maybe he
wanted a new boat and my stone haul was going to carry him there.
I asked the new urologist if there was anything at all I could do; he said pure LEMON JUICE, get some and make some strong lemonade, drink that
exclusively til our next appointment. So for the next 2 weeks I drank nothing but strong home made lemonade and I had zero stones. What a relief since
5 were lurking in wait only 2 weeks earlier; he said that people with kidney stones don't excrete enough of something ? (I can't recall) to break
down stones; but the citric acid from lemons is a great substitute for it. I can happily say I haven't had another stone in about 6 years all I do is
drink about a gallon of real lemonade a month, or pound a couple of quarts when my kidneys feel a little off if I get slack on intake.
Hopefully, this "cure" gets to people that suffer from these horrid things, so they can be rid of them once and for all. If currently
suffering...beer beer beer, it numbs the ureters and is a diuretic (makes you urinate).
