…ar or so. Trust me, after you’ve gone through it a dozen times it’s not that big of a deal anymore. Yes, it hurts like a bastard, but these days I usually just tough through it with a cocktail of aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, naproxin, and sometimes benadryl and occasionally an herbal painkiller that works well if you can get past the vomiting… it’s quite disgusting. :D
Isn’t it funny how the first time, you’re positive you’re going to die? I got my first after going through childbirth twice, one all natural, the other with minimal pain relief, and I promise you the stone was so much worse.
But then when it happens again, even if its a worse episode than the first one, you’re all gladiator mma with that little fucker…
At least that is what happened with me.
