I think you may be on to something. It explains a lot of the issues I have seen, and I am on gout medicine to lower my uric acid and that can crystallize in your joints and possibly your urinary tract.
I am waiting to hear back from the doctor and also my local urologist wrote me a script for an x-ray. I am not sure that they can detect the stone if it is in the urethra, but I am going to have it done monday and see what comes of it.
I’d hate to think I could do some damage to the repair job. That would really suck.
