Man, you're a pretty minimalist guy in watches and mobile gear.

Mm... I don't really consider myself minimalist, more like efficient.

There's no kill like overkill, so why not more DF?








That's how North America thinks right?

Thanks for the well wishes.

 

Let me tell you, peeing blood is scary. I've had kidney stones before, but nothing this big: it was about as big as you can get without totally obstructing the pathway.

 

I have a pretty huge tolerance for pain. I've had several surgeries, obstructed bowels, a hole punched through my bladder, herniated discs, herniated intestines, ruptured veins, burns, broken teeth.... up until now, I'd say the most painful of the lot was an epidural headache that lasted several days. Basically that's caused by uneven pressure in your head due to a hole in your spine, and it only goes away when doctors inject your own blood into your back to fill the hole with a clot. You have to lie down for 24 hours without moving while in utter agony.

 

Passing a kidney stone that was almost too large to pass? Yeah, that trumped it. The epidural headache still comes out on top due to the sheer length of time of the suffering involved. However just in terms of raw intensity this takes the cake. Like, several orders of magnitude higher than what I assumed it would feel like. Worse than any tooth-related pain which surprised me (as for some reason I'm super-sensitive about anything mouth related). The only saving grace was that it lasted about four minutes tops. Any longer and I would have most certainly passed out from it.

Wow...intense. Good think it is over. I thing you should buy something audio related to reward your courage :)

Well the only bright side is that if you were a man, you have to pass it through the urethra too...

I'd say it's more like just the USA.

 

@MF: Hope you get to feeling better soon!

By the way, I've been meaning to ask, is there a certain reason you haven't listed all of the gear you own in your profile? Sorry if it's been asked many times before...

mechgamer123, she formerly maintained the practice and disclosed the reason for stopping. But, I'll respectfully let her respond when she's up for it.

I'm kind of speechless. Well not now anyway, but... that's a lot of pain. I fractured my tibia once, and even with that I just can't imagine your pain. Stay strong MF.
On a side note, (Click to show)
when the doctor was putting on the cast and I finally am not in pain, he said it'd be better if the fracture was a clean break instead. I was aghast when he said that, but after looking at the xray I guess it makes sense. I think. The fracture was near the foot-end of my tibia, and the crack is almost all the way through. He said it would heal better/faster if it was broken. :shrug:

So, did the Doc get you to focus on something irrelevant? And then... snap! ksc75smile.gif

As I understand the process, it is you who needs to pass it, namely pushing to pea rocks, to your focus is not on something else tongue_smile.gif

EDIT: you were talking about the Tibia...really need to go on a weekend.

LOL no. If it's nearer the middle of my tibia, maybe... but this is really at the end, so unless he's inclined to use a hammer...

In my experience, cute makes everything better.  smile.gif

 

Now we just have to make sure Driver is okay.  Are we still doing the pain management playlist?  Doesn't seem like there's much interest though.  Maybe just you and I could make up a playlist.  Say... five songs each?

I think he ended up doing five, one to cover each room.  Then he went back and covered Mr. Speakers and UE in more detail.  Not quite being there, but oh well.  There will be more meets.  Not to mention a homecoming.  wink.gif

Good thing it's over.  smile.gif  BTW, just looking over the list of maladies... HOW IS IT THAT YOU'RE STILL ALIVE?  eek.gif  <---( I meant that in a nice way... )

@warren, there's a fine line between YT's WTFloldisfanni videos that doesn't make sense, and then there's True WTF. This Heat is one of the latter. I like it, don't get me wrong, but it's best to be taken at small, infrequent doses, and I don't need to be reminded of it too frequently. :P

YOU STILL ROCK MF! <3
