As I mentioned in my previous post I’ve recently had the fun of surgery. As with any surgery there is inherent risk, and this was no exception. The fun that I speak of is the fact that my first surgery didn’t go so well and required additional procedures.
One day I went to work as usual and some time in the afternoon my back and groin started hurting. Sort-of like getting kicked in the nuts and stabbed in the back at the same time. I couldn’t explain where it came from. I tried walking it off, and various other methods until I called my wife. She suggested I just go to the urgent care office and have it checked. After a few checks I was given the “good” news that I might have a kidney stone. After a CT scan later that day it was confirmed to be 6mm in diameter.
