I'm no good at the support thing, so instead just watch this Seinfeld clip of Kramer passing a stone at the circus.

Nothing personal, but this is kidney stones we're talking about. What are we supposed to do? Not make fun of you? Let's be rational here...

My dad has suffered from kidney stones his entire life and has passed by his own count some 50 of them. At one point he had a particularly large one and they bombarded it with ultra sound to break it up so he could pass it.

I wish you lots of morphine-like chemicals and a speedy recovery.

I appreciate the thought, but I'm perfectly okay. I had my brush with stones over a year ago, promptly cut down on my sugar and caffeine, and haven't had an issue since.

But that morphine derivative was some good shit, I still remember when they shot it into my IV and I could feel it working it's way up my arm and across my torso. In hindsight that was scarier than the stones, because it was at that moment that I understood both why they were so cautious in administering it in the first place, and how easily someone could get hooked on that feeling of relief.

Based on my youngest brother's relating his experience (he's a cancer survivor), they probably gave you dilaudid. That warming sensation is what he described.

Morphine does the same. Yes

Dilaudid works much better than morphine in my journeys with kidney stones. Morphine allows me to grit my teeth a little less. Dilaudid actually stops the pain.

I had a perforated small intestine as a result of catching the flu in '96 (long back story). I was on a morphine (machine) drip, where I got doses on some regular interval. I had told the doctors(s) that I wasn't hurting (I have a high threshold for pain, and in that case, didn't feel any pain) and that I didn't want that drip. The only thing I remember about that at this point is that I would get a seriously dry mouth when it kicked in, and that is the only way I knew that I was getting the morphine. They finally pulled the damned thing out, after I complained enough times. When I hurt, I want medication. When I don't, save it for someone who needs it! Interesting thing is, I damned near died during that hospital visit, and lost 30+ pounds in 3 weeks. Good times!
