I saw the doctor today. Diagnosis is a large kidney stone. Surgery Monday.

I'm just glad it wasn't a tumor.

Ohmy

I hope you are feeling better soon.

wow.

so are they going to remove the large stone? or blast it into bits of small stone that you will have to pass? neither option sounds fun.

I looked up my symptoms on Web M.D. All I learned was that it could be anything from trivial to fatal. Duh. I'm trying not to worry about it.

Ahh WebMD...

The best choice is to break it up and then pass it. It's not a good plan to cut into the kidney.

It's not pleasant but the eventual relief after that stone is gone and the kidney can flush itself out and the swelling go down will be worth it.

I have been lucky (maybe that's not the best word) to only have to have one broken up with lithotripsy. One they wanted to go get through the urethra but that can cause scarring. I opted to let it pass on it's own. I get them often and choose to tough them out.

Ouch. That shit fucking hurts.


For what it's worth, I've done my time in the ER. Scream, "WHAT THE FUCK ARE NUMBERS?? OH MY GOD THIS HURTS SO BAD I CANT REMEBER WHAT NUMBERS ARE!!!!!"

They give you morphine.

Last time I got Dilaudid - then you learn that morphine is the beer of pain killers while Dilaudid is the champagne.

However, they don't listen when you tell them you want a case of it to take home. Undecided

RE: Emergency Room
Ask them if they have the "dunk you in a tank of water, and blow it up with ultrasound" option, (lithotripsy). (It may be too big for that, but ask).

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.
