Until 30 minutes ago, I did not realize what a kidney stone was, or what it looked like.
My husband has had a very sore penis tip the last few days, and assumed it was a UTI. He couldn't get in to see the doctor today, so he looked into the tip and saw something there. He asked me to help him, and I just extracted a fairly large stone (about 4 X the size) of his opening when relaxed. Because I thought this was bizarre, I went online and did some research, and realized I had extracted a kidney stone! He had never been in any pain the last week or so, except for a very minor pain in his groin. After reading all your posts and other info, I realize how lucky he was!!
I also am glad he didn't have any sugery due to ignorance on our part, a clean tweezer, and chutzpah on my husband's part letting me cause him some pain ;-)
