So. Followup today, and despite my optimism about the pain moving, the 7mm kidney stone hasn't moved at all; it's still camped out right outside the kindey, causing a bit of dilation and plenty of pain (which has gotten worse, blown right through the percoset, and so they gave me hydromorphone. I don't know what this stuff will do to me, but if the percoset -- oxycodone -- is any indication, this stuff is really going to f*ck me up, but I guess I need it soon).

So extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy for me. Whenever they get around to agreeing with the urologist that saw me, and we work out payment and blah, blah, blah. Monday if I'm lucky. Tuesday to Wednesday are more likely, unfortunately.
