    kidney stones and cooks.

    It's no surprise that cooks often get kidney stones. I'm currently in a hospital after squirming in pain. It seems a stone blocked up my bladder. One of the most excruciating experiences I've ever had.

    Currently in a hospital gown waiting for my ct scan results and diagnoses. Went to the e.r. this 5am.

    This is gonna be expensive. Healthcare here is nonexistent and private hospitals are only after your cash.

    Gonna probably undergo shock wave therapy again. Last time it was 5 -6 years ago.

    You guys better watch out for kidney stones.

    That was one of the things that contributed to me getting out of the business. I feel for you man.

    yeah, I pissed a pea sized one once, hurt so, bad I puked and then passed out. Not fun. On the plus side it was the only one in there.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    How does working in a restaurant lead to this?

    Pro cooks often use more salt than people who cook at home.

    Then there's the fact that we'd never listen to our doctors to cut down in the fat, salt and sweets.

    What's a cook that doesn't cook without flavor?

    Thanks guys.

    Probably more to do with not staying well hydrated. Drink more water.

    Dehydration did it to me.
