Kidney stones strike again!
Just got back from the ER, haven't felt well the last couple days but today was ROUGH! Finally gave in and went to the ER...CT scan confirmed what I suspected...kidney stones. They are small enough to pass but it still really, really stinks.

Morphine hangover has left me with an awful headache. BLAH! Sadcryface2

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

RE: Kidney stones strike again!
That's pretty crap.

Do they pass themselves or do you help them along with something?
It's a pity they can't laser them.

Hope you're feeling better, Anj

Don't you guys just love how our kidneys are perfectly designed to sometimes make stones that hurt us.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

That's gotta hurt. ... well except for the morphine part, Anjele ain't much experienced at handling hangovers, . ... I'm waiting for it. It's gonna happen.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Kidney stones strike again!
My mom had kidney stones a lot when I was younger. I kept having to wake up in the middle of the night to drive her to the ER.

Taught me to down 3 or 4 bottles of water a day.

Also, the occasional beer is said to help. It evacuates the water from your body, so it helps keep the tubes clear. Dr. Thropik recommends drinking a shit-load of water (always, of course) one chosen day a week and finishing the evening with 2 or 3 beers. It'd be like a weekly cleanse. lol

RE: Kidney stones strike again!
I only ever had one, like 20 years ago, so I am lucky that way.

My mom suffered horribly with them and I remember frequently coming home from grade school finding her in bed asking for a bucket - so she could throw up.

I hope you feel better asap, drink, drink, drink. The doctors here recommend cranberry juice now, and that has been around for ages but just recently the medical community decided to validate it. So, drink that, along with tons of water. Never heard of the beer before but the logic makes sense.

Also, the more you can walk, the better. Gravity plays an important part in passing. So, whenever you feel able, pace, pace pace, drink, drink, drink....and then pace and drink some more. Hard to do sometimes but it pays off...

Keep your head up, it'll pass.

RE: Kidney stones strike again!
I have had bouts with kidneys stones over the last 15 years. Seems that all the antihistamines I have been taking lately have sucked the fluids out of me. Luckily these are small enough to pass without medical intervention beyond something for pain. I suppose I have to choose between sinus infections or kidney stones, or I need to just wheel around with a continual saline drip. Obviously, I cannot consume enough fluids to keep up with what Zytec-D is taking out of me.

Am going to try to get into work later if my eyes ever uncross. That morphine really kicked my butt.

I don't drink alcohol and never liked beer anyway...I don't know that I could get one down, even for medicinal purposes.

The sinus thing - see if you can get a prescription for fluticasone nasal spray - it won't dry the fluids out of you and it works and is not addictive like the old sprays were.

Awww. *Straps on his latex gloves* You're coming over to my place tonight; we're doing shots, and you're gonna have fun. Dr. Thropik will fix you right up. Tongue

(NOTE: Refusal of medical treatment will be regarded as a sign of mental instablity and will turn full custody of the patient, including all medical decisions and proceedures, over to the medical staff)

RE: Kidney stones strike again!
Wait a second.

Patients are well within their rights to refuse treatment, and by law must be left alone... Or is it different in your basement Mr. Thropik?
