Argh another battle with 1 little 4mm stone that just wont pass ,it`s been about 10 years now since my last battle with kidney stones and so far this is the worst ever . Woke up during the night with severe pain on the 26 March that lasted for about 3 hours had a few leftover meds that helped me . Had a few bouts with pain over the next 3 days then finally decided enough was enough so i go to our local clinic`s ER and the send me to Hospital 40 miles away for a CT Scan and yup stone has left my kidney and is on its way down .They assure me its going to be pain full and load me up with meds for at least 2 day battle and go home for a fight.
Now this fight is lasting way to long 9 days with frequent bouts of pain %#$^#&% so i go directly to Hospital ER big mistake er is full and wait 8 hours to see a Doctor and get a xray to be told that stone has not moved and needs to be removed asap. Doctor consults with a Urologist and he gives me a appointment for 7.50 am next day with a 2 hour drive to get there. Meet Urologist at 7.50 am next day and he asks if i can wait another day but he will make sure i dont suffer . I tell him Doc if you dont remove this pain today im a retired Power Lineman and i assure you my friends at work will make sure every time you sit down in your home to relax it will be by candle light for the next month . So he added me to his list of surgeries for that afternoon .
So far everything is going good after the third day but tomorrow i have to go back and get a stent removed ,he left some fishing line sticking out of my wazzooo and apparently he just has to pull on it and out comes the stent that reaches up to my right kidney. He better be delicate because ill have one of my hands close to his neck just in case lol.
Let you know tomorrow how the stent removal went :)
