Kidney stoned

Yeah, so, got to experience both my very first kidney stone attack and (not unrelated) my very first dose of a narcotic drug yesterday afternoon. Didn't much like either of them. This too, did pass ... now, instead of 11 on the pain scale, I just feel like I'm in the recovery stage after being beaten by ten angry elephants. Going to try and nap, now.

Emily is taking very good care of me, and the staff at Parkview Noble ER was awesome.

Petzi Sis gets those and her urologist told her to drink Crystal Light Lemonade. There's something in that that kidney stones don't like.

I've heard that, and I've heard citrus drinks in general can help. Anything that will keep that from happening again, I'll be happy to try!

I think they can sometimes break stones up with ultrasound. Of course, you'd probably still have to pass the bits :-(

Sleep is good, as are the powerful pain drugs.

Apparently they don't use ultrasound unless one is too big to pass, or for whatever reason just won't move out. I don't even want to think about that!

Oh, no! Glad you're on the mend, though.

I liked Petzi's comment about Crystal Light Lemonade, and I can vouch for it's tastiness. If it keeps you healthy, so much the better!

Like I told her, I'm willing to try anything!

speaking from experience, both of those things suck. Feel better soon

Far too many people have experienced this! I'm a lot better; apparently I passed the thing way sooner than most people do.

Now that I'm back home, Emily's the best nurse ever!
