So they tell me I'd passed a one mm stone an got a two mm one ta go yet. Gotta see doc tammarraw before I can go back ta work. Hope I never go through this again!

Been there done that got the T-shirt and believe I feel your pain, Tip, and can share in your misery.  In my late 40's I had several episodes passing stones; found out I was causing it myself by drinking soda and milk in close succession, at least that was what the doctor said.  Hope you recover and get back to work (work really isn't a bad place when you compare it to being at home passing stones!) and I echo Pineywoods, please thank the oldest for his patriotic service.

You're missing out, meateater!

Travcoman--Thank your eldest for me too, for his service.  Best wishes to you too, passing your stones.  I had that experience a couple years ago, with a 4mm stone.  I was laid up in the hospital for four days, and the morphine they had me on made me want to puke but didn't touch the pain.
