Healthy Geezer: Treatment, prevention for kidney stones

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 by FRED CICETTI in Social News

Q. I've heard the worst pain you can experience is from passing a kidney stone. True?

I had a friend who served in the Royal Air Force in World War II. On a bombing run over Germany, his co-pilot started to pass a kidney stone. The pain was so bad that the poor guy wanted to jump out of the plane. He had to be knocked unconscious.

Kidney stones have been inflicting extreme pain for at least 7,000 years. Evidence of them was found in an Egyptian mummy.
