i have passed three so far, and on the third one my manager told me to drink alot of lemonade cause it eats some of the rigidity and spurs off the stone, i did that and it really helped along with water and cran juice to help make it not hurt as bad when it came out. all i can say is that afterwards, ifelt 110% better almost immediately aftewards.
The lemonade idea actually makes sense. Lots of citric acid.
I use to have a different recurring problem 'down there' with testicular torsion, if anyone knows what I'm talking about... it was so painful once I almost threw up twice within 30 minutes. Other times it was extremely uncomfortable, but I was able to walk it off...err, 'limp' it off. I can't exactly walk normally when that happens.
