    Passed a kidney stone. So I guess I can cross that off my bucket list.

    Wow. Just wow. Thank god it only lasted 30 minutes. What am I, 90 years old? This age stuff seems to be coming on like a rocket all of a sudden.

    My first at 25. I have passed 3 in last 2 weeks. I feel for you. I changed my diet for the better and stopped all of the Coke drinking and now doing a gallon a day or so of water. I think that is flushing them out! If you start to feel like someone hit you in back or privates or frequent pee urge....drink LOTS of water or cranberry juice move it on out!!

    No, Statius, you don't need to be 90 y.o., I'm 48 this year and around 3 years ago I noticed that my health started decline quite rapidly: joint-muscle problems, mental- emotional issues and so on... Never produced a gem thou, cause always drank a lot of water...
    See a specialist, change your diet and remember:

    Had one at 20 passed that painfully , although the year and a half before it was on the move and they could not pin point it and ultrasound was a bit new to blast it . The pain is not what I'd wish on anyone. Then blow me at 53 another came along this time had it blasted but bits got stuck and had to have them pulled out . I'm not kidding. Still its all part of life's rich tapestry. DW.

    Should I be worried? Never had one. I'm pretty well-endowed so I should be okay unless its a tennis ball-sized one, right?
