Hope you get that sucker cleared out and that you are back to normal soon, my friend.

Blessings to you, bro.  I hope it passes without undue pain.
I've never had a kidney stone, but I recently had to have a catheter inserted for a few days so that I could evacuate my bladder after hernia surgery.  I thought I had died and gone to hell for those four days.  There is nothing worse than having your plumbing malfunction.  Here's wishing you the very best recovery possible.

I have had 12. I am obviously a semi-expert. I have had 6 crushed, 5 I have handled myself, and the one I had last week they had to go in and get. That was by far the worst. They left a freaking tube in my ureter and a string hanging from my penis and told me I had to pull it out myself. Which wasn't pleasant, but wasn't unbearable. They really are not fun, but the ways I have learned to deal with them are simple.

1) Run a super hot bath, like almost to the point it burns, and immerse the side that hurts. It won't take all the pain away, but it will help.
2) Pain Pills. Duh.
3) Beer, Not enough to get you drunk or anything. Thats a bad way to deal with it, but it will help clear you're kidneys out.
4) Cranberry juice. Same effect as beer, just cranberry juice.

Sorry you have to deal with this, I know it sucks.

They can take awhile to pass but it never hurts to get a professional opinion as to whether you should come into the doctor or not.  Kidney stones can be smooth but they can also be jagged.  If it passes, just look for blood in your urine and if there is any, head to the doctor right away.

I had forgotten about the ureteral stent with the easy-pull string attachment, even though I helped a bunch of them in.  It wasn't hard to get out.  My wife pulled mine out for me.  I took a deep breathe and she pulled it at the same time.  I did not even realize it was out, so I looked down and asked if she going to pull it. She laughed at me and dangled it front of me.

You should talk to my father.  He had more stones than he can count and has passed some of them, never knowing he had one.  They've hit the back of the urinal, a couple have plopped into the toliet and he left one in a urine sample at a yearly physical a few years ago.  They don't bother him much, painwise, anymore although with the first 10 or so, he'd crawl around on the floor and bark like a dog.  Now he just complains of occasional mild pain in the flank, like someone has hit him with a fist.  Me?  I still crawl under and around the car seat on the way to the hospital and turn somersaults on the way into the building.  I can dance a momba while holding my left arm perfectly still for the IV insertion so that I can get some narcotics.
