Unless that "contrast material" could have been the "fluids" going into my arm, They did not do an ivp.
Could be. I will guess that the CT Scan showed much the same thing an IVP would show- it looks for blockages anywhere along the system

That's very heavy! And preferable to Tonka's pee-gravel story.

Get better soon! Maybe they gave you some stuff to make the stone smaller. I've heard that pain is the absolute worse.

It is worse than a fallopian tube being ripped apart and WAY worse than labour pains.
Tonka has my deepest and most sincere sympathy,.

I have been told by a friend who had one of similar size, the pain is when it goes from the kidney to the bladder, but from the bladder to the exit was not painful at all.

According to ER doc last Friday, it had almost reached the bladder. I have had no pain since Friday. Have not taken any of the pain meds they prescribed. I feel great.

That is absolutely correct. It's the trip to the bladder that is painful.
PM me if you want any tips on dealing with reoccurence.

Tonka,
They get a lot of structural information with CT scans, but the radiation dose is very high.
Did they bother to take the time to mention that to you?
They are supposed to. It is part of their job to educate the public about radiation exposure.
Glad to hear you're feeling good.

Gambling, gay marriage, weed. The barriers are falling.

I would like to see NV style sex worker legalization. Like weed usage, it would regulate rather than criminalize. It would cut out court, cop and jail expense. It would allow health and wage and benefit packages. It would get johns who patronize consenting adult sex workers off the sex offender lists. It would generate revenue through license and taxation

I don't know. The IVP is species specific.
If it's not a urinary stone, the CT scan covers the whole abdomen in great detail, depending on how many slices they do and how far apart they are. The CT scan is a catch-all far the ER doc who is constrain by time factors and other unknown variables.

And all those peeps who would not have broken their vows are now encouraged to do so. It's legal after all.

Right. I noticed that since they legalized crime and murder, everybody's doing it.
