I read about this humongous kidney stone over at Happy's blog and followed his links to read the rest of the story!
I thought a kidney stone the size of a golf ball was a joke and didn't know they really could get that big. When medical staff told me my 1st kidney stone was the size of a golf ball, I figured they were being facetious, but I also thought I had a big stone because the urologist said I had been working on it a long time. It was 6 mm.
This one was said to be the size of a coconut! YIKES!
What I don't understand is how did the kidney accommodate it? Wasn't it heavy? Didn't it hurt? And I wonder if it damaged his kidney or anything else?
That poor man. I hope he is alright.
And one more: HOW could it happen in the first place???
