Sooooo apparently I have a stone in my right kidney....fuck. I had no idea that they could hurt so much, but holy hell I thought I was dying this morning!
Ok, so Ive been having some lower back pain, mostly on the right side, for about a week and since I have a history of back pain (especially before my breast reduction), so i thought it was just from long days at work but apparently it was early signs of the stone moving. This morning, at about 4am I woke up to go pee, which was all fine and dandy then I went back to bed but I felt all crampy and went to the bathroom again and peed a lit more, all good. it wasnt until I went to lay back down that all shit hit the fan. I was laying in bed and suddenly a sharp, stabbing pain ripped into my side and caused me to feel sick so I ran to the bathroom and was actually writhing on the floor in agony, gasping for air since it hurt so much I couldnt even take a breath properly. I rumbled back into the bedroom and woke up my boyfriend and was freaking out cause it hurt so much and he was going to call an ambulance but the pain seemed to dull enough that I thought I could drive (bad idea.) So we rushed to the car and I drove (boyfriend has no license). The hospital is about 15 minutes away and thank God no one else was on the road cause I sped like a demon and just as the was pulling into the hospital parking lot I was hit with a huge wave of pain and also felt sick to my stomach. As soon as the parked the car I jumped out, vomited, fell to my knees then vomited again, all while my boyfriend rushed off to get me a wheelchair.
God, checking into the hospital and getting blood taken, and waiting for the fucking doctor to see me was hell, pure hell. They only had one doctor on and a ton of people in need, like a guy who had a heart attack. Now Im a patient person but I was crying, screaming in pain and unable to hold still, it was horrible and I felt like I was being ripped apart from the inside. Only when I was put into a bed, right before the doctor came did the pain ebb enough that I wasnt writing about or crying. I had to do a urine test after the doctor poked at me a bit, then wait for the results before the doctor shared her suspicion of kidney stones. I then had to wait, have a CT scan then wait again for the results. So in total I was at the hospital for about 5 hours. Uhg -_-
Anyways I was told I have a small kidney stone that should, hopefully pass on its own with the help of a few medications I was given. if I doesnt pass by the time I see a urologist in a few weeks I may need Lithrotripsy to remove it. So heres hoping it passes on its own and my pain medicine keeps me comfortable!.
