    wait are you growing new lips

    Basically, yes. I've taken photos of it every day to chart the progress. I'll post a collage at the end when it's all healed.

    yeah my understanding right now is that they're gonna do the ultrasound stuff to it

    he had pains last week that lead to the paramedics being called in and they thought he had a heart attack, it was causing him so much trouble

    11mm seems big

    Mine was an ordeal, blacking out from pain and all, and it was less than 4mm

    11mm is huge. Nearly half an inch, which might actually be a size that's impassible without ultrasound.

    My understanding is that past 5mm passing it is pretty rare if not impossible

    at that size it’s essentially like peeing a standard sized marble.

    I hear the ultrasound stuff they do has gotten much better at breaking up stones these days.

    I wish they even could have tried it on me but too small and already stuck in my ureter, they could barely see it on ct scans. Instead I had that whole nephrostomy ordeal because they fucked up trying to take it out.

    As one of the community medical people let me say that's absurdly large.

    The surgeon who removed my appendix said it was the biggest she'd ever seen, which is neat I guess.

    when I had to go to an ENT he said my uvula is dagger-shaped and 'he'd never seen one like that before'

    Because I just got a report from my echocardiogram and it doesn't sound great to me

    i've had one kidney stone and the doctor casually mentioned that it was "weird" that i felt the pain in the urethra rather than the ureter and simply never elaborated on that so thanks doc

    I felt the pain in the front of my right side for mine

    Which is odd apparently because they say kidney stones usually hurt in your back

    They checked me for my heart first then my appendix before they saw the stone in my ureter in the ct scan

    It sat there for months unmoving before they took it out and butchered my ureter and nearly killed my right kidney.

    Fuck yeah, being human is so cool. Your body is falling apart all the time and pain is the only constant. Love it.

    My brother had a kidney stone that they needed to break up with ultrasound. Apparently the pain is crazy but it’s very hard to find painkillers that work for it, so instead they have him something with the side effect of short term memory loss so he wouldn’t be traumatized by the pain.

    He remembers going in for the procedure and then sitting on the bus back home.

    I think I preferred the time before I knew about the existence of this.

    Which I guess is a "good news, everybody" sort of situation.

    A friend of mine dislocated his shoulder in a skiing accident, and when they re-set the joint in the ED that’s the sort of drug they gave him. He says it was quite effective, doesn’t recall the pain from that maneuver at all.

    When there took out my kidney stone and my kidney was blocked because they damaged my ureter they gave me dilaudid and morphine for the pain I was in but it didn't even touch it

    My dad's been scheduled for neck surgery late February. He's been having chronic pain from a compressed spine for the last half year or so and finally went to get an MRI that told him without surgery a single unlucky fall or jolt could make him a quadraplegic. Stenosis I think they called his condition.

    So in the meanwhile he's on really good pain medication which is making him foggy in the head once it kicks in. And the man already had a tendency to be a bit dopy at times so my mother is having fun dealing with that.

    ???

    Are you sure he wasn't simply put under? Like, I don't remember the procedure for getting my wisdom teeth removed, I just remember waking up at home with a ton of gauze in my mouth - but in that case I was transported by my mother, who would gladly tell you about all the delirious stuff I was trying to write down during the missing time.

    Either way, seems irresponsible for the practitioner to utilize such a drug without someone to accompany your brother while he was under the influence.

    Last time I had surgery scheduled I spent a lot of time around 2 AM trying to figure out if there was any way to tell the difference between an actual anesthetic and a really effective paralytic+amnestic.
