    In the hospital. Been in crippling pain, left kidney, sure enough, passed a stone.

    Doctor does a CT, comes in, tells me I need additional images taken because it looks like I have a tumor in my hip.

    Waiting game now.

    Kidney stones are no laughing matter.

    Good luck on the other issue.

    Hope it turns out to be just a shadow on the image, a common occurance that they have to try and rule out. Prayers to you and yours!

    I am sorry to hear about your troubles. Still, try to think about it this way. If it weren't for the kidney stone, you wouldn't have known about the other thing. I hope it's nothing but if it is something at least you can start dealing with it right away, instead of finding out later on when it might be too late. I wish you all the best.

    Don’t be conservative with the docs. Let’s wait and see is a hard no

    Hopefully just an artifact of some kind that needs to be ruled out (as someone already mentioned).
    Best of luck. At least you have meds on board to manage the stone. I was a freaking wreck till they worked their way up to dilaudid.

    The stone is now the least of my worries.

    They keep asking me if my leg is bothering me, if I have pain in my femur, or hip.

    This is either a fluke in the image, or some serious shit.

    Might be a blessing dude... Wasn't there a poster on here who went in for pneumonia and ended up having his life saved cause they found an unrelated tumor in his lung?

    Best of luck man!

    But, DO it! Don't forget NES will give you all the advice you want, :D and don't want. As stated above, hopefully it is just a 'shadow' and you only have to deal with the stones. Best of luck. Prayers sent.

    So the Orthopedic and Radiologist on duty just came to chat with me.

    I have a enostosis growth (Bone Island) in my right hip. Basically an overly calcified benign tumor.

    Probably nothing to worry about, but something to keep a close eye on.
