Lol, two months ago I writhed in agony and hours later experienced movement and dissapearance of pain. It was because a stone was in my kidney and had moved to the bladder through the left ureter.
Saturday last I ate two mombo sized boxes of lemonhead candy, I basically od'd on lemonheads. the next day I felt like I had a UTI so I took appropriate measures. Day after that - same, except for whatever cosmic reason I decided to put a beaker to my Magic Wand when I was taking a whiz. I caught the body doing its magic, because the urine I collected was a true orange and turbid, and I used my Fisher pH meter and measured the pH to be 5.8. Don't be a ditz and think I need to drink more liquids, I was, and an hour later pissed perfect straw color, pH 6.7, and another hour, same straw colored 6.7 pH.
Wanting a drink by now, I measured 25 ml of grain alcohol and blended about 400 ml fresh OJ with it and drank. Next piss ......... the stone from november came out, quite unexpectedly, midstream. My symptoms of UTI went away immediately and yesterday I had a greeeaaattt day. But while that thing was in there, it felt like a full-blown UTI, at least from a perceptable symptoms standpoint. Upon close inspection, the stone is nice crystalline platelets.
The question is, if that came out of the left kidney, then WTF do I think is in the right kidney ? You're right, probably more of the same. So I have begun dissolution therapy. No need to wish me luck though, its all under control.
I thank my one true Guide for assistance and kindness for bestowing me with the knowledge necessary to avoid having had to call an ambulance in those dark painful hours. I would have called them, except I trust my one true Guide more than I could ever trust any man.
The body magic referred to above is my belief that the body, sensing and knowing a stone is in the bladder, will actually CAUSE the pH of the urine to drop in an effort to get the stone out by undercutting the bond between the stone and bladder wall by dissolution.
