1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    The actual process of removing stones is not always straightforward, and you are correct with your above assumptions - BUT stones can also be removed (as a last resort) by cutting an opening in your back to remove the barstewards.
    The first time i went under for the op it was unsuccesful as i was told that my 16mm stone was trapped in a diverticulum (pocket) in my right kidney, so they had to abandon the procedure.
    Part 2 was having a stent fitted for fooking longer than i should have to open my p**s pipe up wider so they could have another dabble (it worked 2nd time) and they blasted the MOFO's into kidney stone oblivion - and the quack told me that after all that, i didn't actually have the 1 stone, as originally diagnosed, but a nice little nest of the b*****s.
    Having a stent fitted is pants BTW and i was p*****g like Red Rum for weeks.
    My point is, do not suffer in silence, get back to your GP and tell him you need option 3 if possible to shift the blighters.

    Yea kidney stones not that easy to remove
    Most pass out your ding dong very painfully after a few days
    In the old days they cut them out but as said above it was a dangerous opp
    They tried ultrasound on me many years ago but they tend not to do that anymore because it doesn’t clear them all out and can leave very tiny bits left which grow again
    Nowadays They mainly put you to sleep and go in via your ding dong hole and then laser them to bits and then put in a stent for 5 or 6 weeks
    Which hurts like hell , again as said above by others
    Main problem with stones are is if they get stuck in your ureathra
    You can’t pee and then your bladder bursts and you die very quickly
    Not good
    Most people say they could make the hospital before it bursts
    Try it for yourself and wait till your bursting and in pain then try and drive to the hospital before you pee yourself
    You won’t make it
    Best thing is as soon as you know you aren’t passing urine is go to the hospital straight away before you are really bursting and then what they do is get a big needle and shove it through your stomach and into your bladder to drain off the urine
    Then your taken away for a opp to remove the stuck stone
    Not nice in any of the situations and if someone says they have a funny cramping pain in their back make sure they go to hospital before they are in trouble
    I’ve had kidney stones of all sizes and shapes every few years since I was 21 and I’m now 54
    Doctors just say I’m a producer and I have to live with it
    Giving up drink has helped a little but I think we all need a good drink to unwind now and again lol

    Tramadol is about a tenth as potent as morphine. It is to most intents one of the last opioid stops before morphine. Having used both I can describe morphine as VERY "moreish". Works brilliantly and is easy to see how it gets addictive. I was away with the fairies but the pain (kidney stones) had stopped. Most people I know who've tried Tramadol can't take them without falling asleep or going do-lally. I was on them for a long time though frankly they did b****r all for pain relief for me and I quit.
    Amitriptyline was indeed initially made and used as an anti-depressant. It works by slowing the brain down. This is good for neural or nerve pain as it inhibits the transmission of the pain message along the nerve. I have trigeminal neuralgia which is a trapped nerve in the head causing agonizing pain making kidney stones seem like a relief. Amitriptyline works to a large degree for this though is not perfect. Anti-convulsant drugs that are used to treat epileptics also can be used to treat neuralgia for the same reason as the cyclic anti-depressants - ie it slows the brain down enough to prevent the messages of pain crippling you. Both cyclic antidepressants and anti-convulsants only work for controlling neuralgia in the long term. They provide no short-term relief. You need to be taking them for at least a fortnight before they'll kick in.

    I think peoples bodies are very different to each others and react very differently to the same meds and even similar medical conditions affect people very differently.
    Morphine does little for me and my kidney stones have hospitalised me three times with pain so severe it just causes instant vomiting.
    When that hits me... Morphine is so useless I may as well pop asprin, IV paracetamol works as well i.e. hardly at all - the only thing that provides relief (as it comes in crushing waves) is hauling on Entonox to the point of almost unconsciousness!
    Tramadol can help with the lesser pain of post-passing after the little blighters have cut their way out...
    The funny thing is I normally have a reasonably high pain tolerance, but my kidney stones have been a whole new level of pain I wouldn't wish on anyone.

    Basically,

    My left shin from the knee to my ankle and around both sides of calf,

    Have no skin anymore.

    It’s broken down and rotted away.

    Imagine taking a razor sharp potato peeler and removing the skin but leaving the nerves and raw flesh.

    That’s what cellulitis has done to me :facepalm:

    The burning agony is indescribable

    Luckily the Tramadol takes the worst of the pain away... as does the specialist dressings the nurse applies three times a week

    The worst is when I have the dressings changed and it’s exposed to air and the nurse has to rub off the rotten skin with wet bandages

    The pain is terrible for hours afterwards:(

    The doc says it should repair in time but it may take months
