Stent  
Referring to TMI... Pictures! Well, just X-rays, nothing actually icky, just enough for your imagination to help feel my pain.

Anyway, this is what they pulled out on Tuesday:



While I was completely and unfortunately conscious, for the record. (Sting a little, my ass. Two days later, it still "stung a little." I watched the monitor long enough to see the inside of my bladder, where the doc fished around for the end to pull, but that was about all I could take before I started, well... Not screaming exactly. Groaning vigorously? I had trouble walking for a while afterwards.)
 
 
In the mood: calmbetter

Glad you're feeling a bit better now--sounds awful.

At least your bones look fine :)

Well, it was done in a doctor's office, getting anasthesia would have required a hospital and a few thousand extra dollars, effort, yadda, yadda.

The stent, I was told, was to help the stone fragments pass, but I tend to think it was more annoying than useful.
