Since March of 1991, I’ve had over two dozen kidney stones either removed by force, or passed by nature.
Naturally, I am used to back pain.
The last few months, my back pain has been acute, and I have been convinced it is due to the six or more stones seen on CT scans.
I’ve been to three doctors, almost begging for an operation – none would cooperate because “the stones are not obstructing.” I need to pass MORE blood, and be in MORE pain.
Monday (28th), I passed a kidney stone.
Tuesday (29th) the nurse called back to tell me the sample was “All clear! No kidney stones!”
Now that’s funny!
The good news is – and I mean this with all my heart – the good news is, now I can concentrate on pulled back muscles instead of a kidney stone attack.
I play a lot of basketball, and it looks like I have “only” pulled some muscles. Only problem is, I continue to aggravate the same muscle pull because I keep playing ball.
Now I know.
