Ow momma, that hurts!!!

In reading the biography of John Marshall, I discovered the he had bladder stones in his late seventies. He endured an operation known as a lithotomy, performed with no anesthetic! An incision was made and the doctor entered into the neck of the bladder. OUCH!!!!!

I had a kidney stone about a decade ago and I am still shuddering at the thought of the above procedure.
