    Re: For me and my kidney

    Thanks all. I'm home for now. I go back sometime SOON for a week of surgeries and recovery. It's BOTH kidneys this time (2cm in each kidney) which means two local anesthetic operations to put in a tube from my back to each kidney, then 2 general anesthesia surgeries to clean out the stones. They do one at a time in case something goes wrong. I say "soon" because the surgeon and his OR are quite booked and unless this becomes an emergency (it is to me already!) like my kidney is gonna die, I have to wait.

    Surgeon said no smoking for a month afterwards, so I'm just gonna hug my humidor and hope osmosis works.

    One of my buddies is taking bets on which stone I'm tossing around!

    Well, the hot shot doctor saw me today and said he thinks we can dissolve this kind of stone if I go on a no-meat diet for 2 months, and dope up on some serious body chemistry altering drugs. So I want to try this versus a 10 day hospital stay!

    The meds are $$$, so I cut back on my cigar budget until then, it's a good thing I have enough to smoke and age

    The doc doesn't believe in narcotic pain meds for kidney stones, though, it's a good thing I live in California and 420 cards are legal, which is where my happy butt is heading tomorrow morning!
