Looks nice and dull, easy to pass though a 3mm wide opening.

My 10 month old has a 7mm one in his kidney.

That poor baby!! My heart goes out to him (and you) when it passes!

Funnily enough that part is easy. It's going between the kidney and the bladder that is the terrible part. Pissing it out is...a piece of piss. The back pain can go on for days but once it hits the bladder it's usually only a few hours to piss it out which doesn't hurt. The pain pretty much stops when it hits the bladder. Well for me anyway.

Then at the end you have some rock candy!

Yeah that seems about right

I get them sometimes...that is accurate it feels like a razor blade going through your back. I have had 3 children and this pain for my stones beats childbirth

Oddly, it makes me think of At The Mountains of Madness. This is kind of how my mind interpreted the “impossible architecture” described in that story. Random, I know.

that explains a lot :)

That’s how my 6mm stone felt like. Jagged little fucker!!


powersurge

I never wanted to be knowledgeable about this. But I am. The shape or most often even the size of the kidney stone does NOT cause the pain. Those waves of debilitating pain across one's sides on the back, are caused by the pressure of the fluid backing all the way up your kidney behind the stone. Most often, when one passes that jagged looking kidney stone, it won't feel like much.

Ouch.


heavy_deez

Makes sense.

I can’t see either of those things, just a bunch of triangles, where is the microscope?


Wizdel

That’s why it felt like razors

I've had five kidney stones in my adult life. (Shitty hydration habits. I carry a water bottle with me everywhere now). It looks just as it feels.

Proof there is no god.

Ouch!


scottyboy069611

This all makes sense now. I just couldn’t imagine why it was hurting so much to the point where I’d go to the ground and not be able to move for a couple minutes. I haven’t had a soda or candy bar in 6 months now and I look at everything’s nutrition information.
