Charlie, I have nothing that I can add, except that I too hope your suffering is short lived, and that the stones flush themselves out soon, without the need for surgery.

I won't even make any jokes about this issue. It's nothing to joke about, though it's a difficult thing. Again, I hope the problem is over soon.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Charlie, click on How Kidney Stones are Treated. It might convince you to drink more water and try to get them to pass! My husband had them. It was terrible. He had a lot of pain, but got them to pass before the doctor had to go in.

Does it help if you put some flavoring in the water, like lemon or lime or cucumber? As others have mentioned, cranberry juice has properties that help dissolve kidney stones. For me, cranberry juice is too tart, but I like cranapple juice.

I hope it passes soon and easily.

It does help to add a sweetener. But with the type of antibiotic I take I have to drink a lot more water than any normal situation. It's kind if hard. To even fit do much water in my stomach.

Well, that antibiotic did not help in the end. I end up in the emergency room, at midnight, last night. And they had to admit me. Doctor wants to keep me till maybe Tuesday. But now the painkillers kick in and I better go close my eyes
