After more than 20 years without one, I had an attack this evening. I didn't even recognize the symptoms as a kidney stone until I started looking them up. But it is all coming back to me now.
The difference between this one and my last stone 20+ years ago is that one was located in the front right of my torso. This is in the back left by my kidney. I don't know what, if any, the ramifications of this are. I also don't know how treatments may have progressed since then. I passed that one. It was excruciating at times, but I did it. I would rather not repeat that if possible.
