Recchi Has Kidney Stone Surgery Prior To Game 7


Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure if this should go in the respective series thread, but its so amazing and disturbing I figured it deserved its own thread.

One Mark Recchi, The 41-year-old veteran, perhaps in his last best chance to win another Stanley Cup, underwent surgery at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Mass. General to remove a kidney stone and was released at 8:30 that night.

The following day he went to play in Game 7 vs Carolina.

Epic, retarded or anything in between.

None of the above. It's actually more retarded to play with injured knees, ankles or shoulders and half of them do it.

Kidney stones are extremely painful, same pain category as labor before giving birth. (i know, i went through both :P ) . A shot of morphine or other such poison makes you good to go until it passes or it's removed, and once removed, it's as if you never had them.
