I recently found out I have a rather large kidney stone that is too big to pass on it's own and need to have it blasted. Has anybody ever been told that and actually had it pass on it's own, and if you did need the procedure, what was it like?Answer Question

I have had several stones pass on their own. I have had one blasted with the laser. They leave a stint in for a few days just to make sure the Ureter does not collapse and cause kidney failure. The stint is much worse than the procedure. You have spasm every time you have to pee. I learned to drink at a certain time and take a pain pill so it would have time to kick in just as I needed to pee. It sounds gross but it is what it is. GL
