@30 Come tell me that when you piss one out. Then I'll beleive you. I'm into pain and shit but that hurts. your little man parts arnt ment to have a rock even the size of a grain of sand bouncing it's way out of you. and for most people it's bigger about the third of a small bead on a necklace.

I've had a kidney stone, and my urologist told me that for almost everyone the pain stops when it gets to your bladder. And if not, your urethra is about twice the diameter of your ureter, so if your stone can travel down your ureter, it will travel much easier down your urethra.

As a woman this is my worst nightmare too! Either male or female, a tiny spiked rock coming out of the tiny holed urethra sounds horrible and excruciating! I think the only thing to try and prevent kidney stones is drinking lots of water, which I thankfully do.

ive had several kidney stones and had to have surgery to get them removed as they were too big to pass and the docters don't know why I get them either, i would never wish this pain upon my worst enemy

80, Ugh, sounds horrible! It sucks they can't figure out why you get them. I hope you never have one again! I must say though, (and maybe I'm ignorant) but the idea of cutting them out seems better to me than it slowly dragging and cutting through your body. Would you prefer the surgery or passing it?

#38 your comment made no sense. OP didn't say that his wife has given birth a dozen times. She has only reminded him a dozen times that the kidney stone feels similar to the pain of giving birth.

#60 I doubt that, because a kidney stone doesn't even hurt as much as childbirth. You don't get labour pain, contractions, and all that jazz while peeing out a kidney stone. I get it hurts, but not as much as pushing another human out of you.

Kidney stones *suck*. I've had 2, one per kidney, and it's awful. I've had a kid since then, and I'd say the kidney stone actually hurts worse than the beginning contractions. Wouldn't know about past that, cuz I got an epidural, but I was given morphine shots for my 2nd and worst stone.

Everyone feels pain differently. For some, childbirth is a breeze and others it is the most excruciating pain ever felt. Those same people that had horrible pain in birth might find kidney stones easy and so on. This argument is pointless because it is based on personal experience rather than actual science/facts etc

Kidney stones also vary in size and how quickly they pass. Much like babies I guess. Sometimes labour only lasts a couple of hours or so, other women can be in labour for even days (although I think medical intervention stops that being as common now). Best bet is probably to avoid both.

@77, my mom has also given birth to 3 children and has said that passing a kidney stone is much more painful. I don't know why everyone was giving that other user a hard time about saying kidney stones are worse

Reply

Yeah, everyone I've talked to who's been through both said kidney stones were worse, too. I don't have any kids, but I have had kidney stones on four separate occasions and they are the most painful thing I've ever experienced, hands down. I wouldn't wish them on anyone. (Last time, I also got a kidney infection with the stones and felt like I was going to die.)

My grandma said that kidney stones hurt worse. When I was in the hospital having the largest of my stones surgically removed. She said that the contractions come in waves so their is a brief moment that doesn't hurt (as bad) whereas the stone is constant pain.
