2010-07-28 ER for "flank pain", extreme pain my my L/side. Some sort of IV painkiller and I was fine very quickly.
2010-07-29 Only time I've been the ER on consecutive days. Same as 07/28 above. Takes about 20-30 secs for relief when the painkiller is injected via IV. Quite heavenly, actually.
2010-08-16 Back to the ER approx. 3:00AM. My urologist stopped to see me about 7AM when we discussed surgery for the stones (2). As I result a was added to the patient list of cases for one of his colleagues. Cystoscopy with wire basket retrieval performed around noon time. The recovery from this was long and painful; however, no more kidney stones. Still true 2014-01-09.
The followup has consisted of an annual 24 hour urinalysis.
