Another kidney stone bites the dust
29-Aug-2007 — by Saulo Silva — Personal
This Monday I had yet another renal calculus crisis—the second one in less than 12 months. There was I, in the emergency section of the local hospital contorting in pain from 18:30 to 22:30. By 23:00 the stone had moved from my ureter to my bladder, which reduced the pain, and by the next day it finally got expelled from my system. After a blood test and an x-ray, the doctor said I had to drink more water and reduce the salt in my diet. I am considering taking Herba Desmodii capsules, a natural diuretic, which a co-worker said does wonders to kidney stones.
