Other People's Experience of Kidney Stones

I dunno if this will be so funny to people who don't have my experience, but the fourth entry on this page makes me laugh and laugh and laugh.

My favorite quotes:

But at this point, it's not over. Apparently, when you stick a hanger like device into the urethra, the urethra reacts badly and decides to close up as to never be violated again. Your urethra is smart, much smarter than you in fact. This is very very bad, because, hey, you need it for stuff. So, the only way to prevent this from happening is to insert a straight plastic tube into the back of your urethra to prevent it from closing and to keep it functioning. THEN YOU GO HOME FOR A WEEK.


The doctor will then reassure you that you may feel some discomfort or pain, but also that many people have gotten along nicely for the week without any discomfort or pain whatsoever. THESE PEOPLE ARE INSANE. You will not be the one without the discomfort, you will be the one with the horrible, unending, tube-caused urethra pain. They expect you to walk around, and act casual! With the tube! in the! and the urethra! and clowns! space monkey! SWEET LORD ALMIGHTY.

This man has captured my experience exactly.
