piedra de riñón

Warning- this is kinda gross. You were warned.



Last month I got what I thought was a kidney infection. Lots of blood in the urine, some pain. So much blood the doc asked me if I might be on my period! I said, "I've been having my period for a while now, think
I'd know."

Got my prescription, drank lots of water. All gone....until about 3 weeks later. When the symptoms came back. More antibiotics. More pain, pretty much a constant ache in my back. I thought it was because I've been sleeping more and my back has been protesting the positions....

So, yesterday I had an ultrasound....kidney stones in both kidneys. Lucky me.

Ay, Dios mio!

Seriously. I'm praying for you.

Drugs are good, too. Real good.

YIKES! Joan of Argghh is right. I'm praying for some good drugs and good alcohol for you.

I have to have a CT scan on Monday. Time will tell, my bloggy friends....

Harper said...

Checking in on you, CT go okay?

Ow! Been there...still doing that. I have been living with stones for about 6.5 years now. 4 times to the hospital. Fortunately no surgery was needed. But I ALWAYS have some "flank" pain.
