Cape Town - Jacaranda FM host, Rian van Heerden, was admitted to hospital on Wednesday night for kidney stones. 

"No doubt... Kidney stone...Hospital or wait for it to pass naturally? But holy shit...It hurts more than my first breakup.. (sic)" the radio host tweeted during the early hours of Thursday morning.

He decided to go to the hospital, and looks like he made the right choice!

The entire ordeal was finally over around 8:00 on Thursday morning. 

"Going home after longest night of my life," he wrote on Twitter.

Barney Simon is currently standing in for Rian on the Complimentary Breakfast show on Jacaranda FM.

Barney wished Rian a speedy recovery on air saying, "All the best, hope you get well very very soon." Well, not before taking a couple of digs at the radio host, saying that all the partying eventually caught up with him.
