China: Doctors remove 420 kidney stones from patient – BBC News

Mr He visited the doctor in May complaining of abdominal pain, and a subsequent CT scan revealed his left kidney was packed full of stones. The doctor says if Mr He had waited any longer then his kidney would have had to be removed.

While having 420 kidney stones sounds uncomfortable, it’s a long way off the world record. In 2009, a doctor in India removed 172,155 stones from a patient’s left kidney during a three-hour surgery, according to Guiness World Records.

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
