The story about the incident generated a lot of discussion among CNN.com readers who had experienced kidney stones themselves. Wrote Deaux, “I’m a mom of 4 children, and I’ve had 1 kidney stone. I’d rather have 4 more children than have 1 more kidney stone.”
We spoke with Dr. Dianne Sacco, director of Massachusetts General Hospital’s Kidney Stone Program, for more information about this condition.
