why would you ever need to, hara ra? kidney stones do their damage when passing thru the tiny ureter, a tube with the inner diameter of a human hair that connects the kidney to the bladder. a large kidney stone is typically the size of a grain of rice. after the stone arrives in the bladder, all is well, for it then passes harmlessly and painlessly thru the relatively enormous urethra and out to sea. the implant could be left in place indefinitely, even if it failed.

is this really *easily done*? even the telemetry part? if so i volunteer to carry one. {8^D spike
