I've heard that those can be real painful. Get well soon, Bobby.

What exactly does it mean to "menove" kidney stones? Did he mean remove?

I think that means they plan on breaking them up so it's easier for him to pass. A lot of times they use sound waves, I don't know if there's another way cause that's the only one I've heard of.

Sucks for him. Hope he feels better soon. The offense better come ready to play because you don't wanna lose your closer for a series against the best team in the AL.

He probably had several, or it was one larger stone that broke apart and it is taking days for them to pass. Sometimes they can take months to pass on their own.

Another kidney stone veteran here. OUCH!

Another kidney stone vet here too. Unless the stone is moving, it can find a spot and rest without causing any discomfort. Once that thing starts to move, it hurts quite a bit.

He had 2. One passed during the last homestand and he was waiting on the other one. When he pitched over the weekend, he still had the other one but it had not yet started moving. Apparently, it is now.

My Dad gets these all the time, usually after consuming an extreme amount of peanuts.

I down half a bag of peanuts every game I go to... Is there some correlation between kidney stones and peanut consumption? Or are you kidding? because that sounds rather ridiculous..
