Had my first kidney stone this week and I have to say it hurt like hell! Luckily the hospital was nearby and they gave me all sorts of fun drugs to mute the pain. The whole ordeal took 6 hours, which I hope to never have to experience again.
For me, this was just sharp reminder that I need to take care of my health. So I joined a gym and hope to be a regular from now on. After my second day of swimming and exercise, I must say I feel great!
