    "Oh, my!"

    In about an hour I'm leaving for the surgery center for the third lithotripsy attempt at ridding me of a tenacious kidney stone in my left kidney. If this doesn't work I'm going to be sent for the far more invasive "up through the penis with forceps" approach.

    This morning, when I woke up, I wrote this essay on the impact of frequent medical attention to my lower left side and groin on my casual attitudes about being naked with others. It's something I'm pretty sure a number of the other members here can recognize in themselves...

    Catch you on the flip side (pun intended).

    Thanks Mr VIP.

    Home again. No incidents, though obvious indications I was catheterized at some point. I’ll have results in a few weeks.

    Kidney stones are horrible. I hope you get it resolved.

    Well. Sh*t.

    Met with the urologist two days ago to review a CT scan and X-ray follow-up, and the third attempt missed the target. Again.

    I'm supposed to meet with a specialist (isn't a urologist a specialist?) to discuss the more "direct" approach I mention above - up through my penis, bladder and ureter with a tube and tongs. I've had several similar procedures before - two uretal stents and removals of them, as well as being catheterized during my last two lithotripsies - but really don't relish lying on my back unconscious while doctors plumb my innards through Lil Rambler.

    Really not happy about having things shoved up my cock, nor the expense of failed attempts. I'm going to lose some weight, and have added apple cider vinegar to my diet to see if I can at least stop the stones from increasing in size (the largest is 8mm, down from 9mm before the lithotripsy, with the other two - probably created when they "winged" the first stone in the last two attempts - at 3mm and 4mm respectively).

    The weird thing is this is probably why I have a medical fetish yet never get aroused with REAL doctors working with my groin...if anything Lil R does his best to hide and I don't blame him.

    Stay tuned.

    8mm? You're a piker.

    I currently have a 12 mm stone in my left kidney that we have been monitoring for some time now.

    Have had several procedures in the past to remove stones, on both sides. Lithotripsy 4 or 5 times. Invasive? For me, he has gone up through the penis with a laser used to vaporize the stone in place.

    I also once had a stone in my bladder nearly 1" in diameter. For that one, he went up through the penis with another device used to bust it up into tiny bits and then flush it out.

    About a month ago my urologist put me on Potassium Citrate tablets twice a day. Supposed to change my blood chemistry in a way that will cause my stones to reduce. We'll see...

    Oh yeah, removing that ureter catheter really, really, sucked.

    Later that day, sitting at my desk at work, I looked down and realized that I had a large dark red spot on the front of my jeans. I had been bleeding and didn't know it; soaked through my underwear and then my 501's.

    Well I also have a problem with kidney stones. I had two partially blocking each urethea removed in an emergency procedure two weeks ago. The procedure involved stents and an instrument put into my urinary system through the penis to smash the stones by laser. The intervention was successful though one stone was embedded in the wall of the urethea. Consequently there was some internal bleeding. The stents are to be removed after the follow up procedure to remove the remaining stones (two) from my left kidney. All four were 6mm in size. The cause of the stones is unknown but probably related to dehydration in summer time. I am very thankful to have two removed and to be given a date for the followup. Sure they see you naked but so what. I must say the urologist, his team and the nursing staff at Wellington Hospital were just fantastic. You were treated like you were family. The standard of care is wonderful. You honestly could not ask for anything better.

    I am glad to report that no further action was required. We're just monitoring the stone. I saw the specialist, then consulted a separate urologist, and both said not to proceed, but just to be watchful.

    The examination of the second urologist was thorough, and I'm probably going to switch to his office for the majority of future maintenance - my current guy is way too happy to send me for tests. This second doctor actually has an ultrasound machine in his exam room and checked my kidneys directly rather than rely upon a technician's report. He checked my genitals first to - ahem - get a handle on my varicoceles. He commented that men don't get them on the right side when I told him I have bilateral varicoceles, then was surprised to be found wrong. He then told me to get onto the exam table - pants still around my ankles - and he brought over the ultrasound device. Checked everything from the kidneys to the groin, having me turn left and right at times for different angles.

    Very thorough and reassuring about telling me not to go any further than monitoring the stones.

    Yay.
