Olympic Gymnast McKayla Maroney Hospitalized with Kidney Stones After Experiencing 'Severe Pain'

McKayla Maroney is opening up about her trip to the hospital.

The 25-year-old Olympic gymnast took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday night (February 24) to reveal that she went to the emergency room after suffering “severe pain.”

“Tuesday I was throwing up all day, with severe pain in my back and stomach,” McKayla wrote along with a selfie in a hospital bed. “Had to come to ER at 3am because pain kept getting worse, and I couldn’t stop throwing up.”

After doctors ran tests, they discovered that McKayla was suffering from kidney stones.

“Just got my CT scan back,” McKayla continued. “I have a few kidney stones.”

Kidney stones are relatively common and are usually resolved in a matter of days or weeks, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The following day, McKayla updated her followers, letting them know that she had been released from the hospital.

“Home from ER. They treated me wonderful, but unfortunately nothing has changed, just on pain management,” McKayla wrote on Thursday while at a smoothie bar.

“This smoothie is literally the only thing I can even think of stomaching,” she added.

Here’s to hoping McKayla gets well soon!
