Well, apparently my body thought that Leah was being an attention hog and I have the "largest kidney stone" my doctor has ever seen.


Was in the middle of getting my broken tooth ground down when I had an awful pain attack. Barely managed to walk the 5 blocks back to work and drove myself to the E.R. where I would spend the next TEN FUCKING HOURS mostly without pain meds, wanting to die. My saving grace, my fucking angel, [livejournal.com profile] theotherpotter  sat with me and more than once yelled and bitched until I finally was in a bed with some vicodin. She was magnificent.

The stone is enormous. Just huge. It'll require either surgery to remove or surgery to put a stint in, break it up, and try to pass it. I'm so fucked. I've got to go out of town on Saturday to trade my car in (the only weekend I can do it) plus I've got my terrifying PHR exam in a week that I need to study for and can't retake till next year OR get my money back.

I'm so fucked. And in such ungodly amounts of pain, even on meds. Plus the meds make me sick. Fuck this noise.

Oh, man, I would suggest not trying to pass it, if there's any way. Mine are pretty normal in size and the one I had to pass caused the horrible infection and pain for weeks. Not as a full stone, anyway. If there's a way to break it up without surgery, I would seriously recommend that. (There should be a laser treatment option available to you, especially if the stone is larger than 5mm, which it sounds like yours is, because mine was 4mm and was 'normal'.)

Uggh, I feel your pain. Literally. <3

haha, mine was 11x15 mm. so now I've got to pass like, multiple tiny rocks. It sucks.

Boo! Can they do the thing where they break it up with sound waves or a laser or something? As you can tell, I'm speaking from my extensive medical knowledge here.
