They hurt like a son of a ***** Passed one once and thought I was dying. I take it you are going to have to come into Timmins for that? Will they not fly you from there to here?

FYI....For several years, I had kidney stone attacks 2-3 times a year...excruciating pain! as I'm sure you now know. On one occasion I was treated (in emerg) by a new Urologist and he told me to drink 2 litres of water daily and add 1/2 c. lemon juice to it (I use the bottled juice concentrate). I have been doing this for about 5 yrs now and haven't had an attack since. Apparently, the acid prevents the stones from forming....amazzzzing!

Lots of lemon and water for sure. Thanks for all the good advice and well wishes...now its just a bunch more tests before doctors final decision on what to do!!
