7mm from Hell: Coping with Kidney Stone Pain

Can you imagine being dropped off at the emergency room by your wife and toddler on a Friday the 13th during a pandemic, for what ended up being a 3 month long excruciating journey of pain? Kidney stone pain has been compared to various other incredible instances of pain such as broken legs, bear maulings, and even childbirth. Join the presenter for a dynamic storytelling experience of a personal acute pain situation embedded with numerous educational interludes along the voyage, culminating with nonelective nonemergency surgery during a pandemic. We will comprehensively review pain management efforts such as pain scales, opioid risk screenings, morphine milligram equivalents, and NSAID and opioid pharmacology. This is not your average campfire conversation, as the presenter promises to withhold no personal details. [He's sorry, but best yet, this storytelling counts for CE credit!]
