    I been poorly this weekend with really bad abdominal pains , seen by out hours doctor home visit 11.00pm who diagnosed kidney stones as did my GP who I saw the following day . Any way pain is going yeah ! But I thought I would share as I done a bit of research found out kidney stones can be a common side effect of WLS , I knew about gallstones being comon but not kidney . Any way knowledge is power . I just think we need to be aware . I’m on the mend but sore

    Poor you, I have stones in both kidney’s and my gall bladder and in 2011 one large stone got stuck and blocked one kidney and caused kidney sepsis which then caused Atrial Fibrillation and septicaemia very ouchy. Eventually passed the offending stone in hospital and named him Sidney, unfortunately was not allowed to keep him as the Urologist wanted him as it was the largest one that he had ever known someone pass.

    I’ve passed kidney stones but that one sounds like a beach ball! Did they slap it on the bum and wrap a blanket round it? You poor love.

    Pain is never a walk in the park my lovely and I wasn’t trying to say “mine was was/is worse than yours” but simply to let you I know that I do understand what you are going through. I hope that you are feeling better and drink, drink and drink and then drink some more.

    It’s a superb tip from the very lovely Carol Ball. I am so lucky to be her friend and she, mine.

    I found my self mindless eating , and I been thinking about it a lot and realise that I eat when thirst ( which I did before WLS ) you think with having kidney stones scare I would learn my lesson and drink more !!!!! So today I’m going to do 2 litres of fluid challenge . So far four mugs of tea and it only 10.00 . And surprisingly urh!!!! I’m not hungry but really thirsty still . I worked out that I have to drink at least 8 mugs of tea/ coffee a day .

    I have absolutely NO problem with not drinking enough lol! I drink so much tea that simply by giving up sugar in it, I saved myself at LEAST 15 teaspoons of sugar every day! FIFTEEN! hey presto – I’ve lost a few pounds 😉 Hydration is our best friend for staving off ‘hunger’ pangs.

    Haha! It does. It works for ME!. My Uncle once lost three stone just by drinking a 2l bottle of water a day. he did nothing else differently. Didn’t restrict his diet, and didn’t do that much more exercise. It took about a year but he has kept it off. His Psoriasis improved exponentially too.

    Now, if I could only help him to give up smoking….

    Oh my goodness I got to be honest but even writing this is difficult because for me as I tend to use denial a lot . Hiding from the truth . Ok I been making some stupid choices eating unhealthy food ( sweets crisp) and I need to stop , I put on two pound which I know considering that I eaten is not much . I’m worried I’m on the slippery slope . I feel so stupid when I know in my head how dangerouse it is for me to regain my weight .i can’t work out why I would sabotage myself . I was four pound off a normal bmi !!!!
