Hey everyone! My name is NikkiMay, and my fiance has been having some serious issues getting help with his constant pain issues. What started out being diagnosed as a 7mm Kidney Stone, turned into a chronic pain issue. He has chronic, moderate to severe pain in his left side, covering his back, side, groin,and sometimes penetrates down to the inner thigh, or reproductive organs. He managed to pass the 7mm kidney stone at home, mind you it was right after an ER visit where he was drugged up pretty good to help with the massive amounts of pain, this was last Feb (2012) After being told the stone was being sent away, and that his pain should now start to diminish over the next week, we weren't told of any results from the lab on the stone, and the pain never went away. After constant CT Scans, MRIs, Urine/Blood Tests, and X-Rays, nothing was diagnosed. He was told by 3 different doctors over 6 months that he has a kidney stone in his left kidney ( size given by doctors varied by doctor ) or that nothing was wrong other than trace amounts of blood in the urine sample. The trace amount of blood in the urine was told to us for 3-4 constant urine tests, and again, no one seemed concerned. Constantly being given pain meds, and told to go home has become very discouraging. Even though we live in Canada, currently he doesn't have a family doctor, making it difficult to get tests done or referrals to specialist. Finally after numerous visits to the ER a doctor finally gave us a referral to a urologist. I think it was partly because they are about to flag my fiance as a pill popper. The Urologist did an Xray, and a CT, and scheduled a Lithotripsy. When we finally went to the Lithrotripsy procedure, we were told the stone was only 2mm which is too small to allow them to see it during the procedure,. We were sent home, with no procedure and an appointment to follow up with the urologist. After the follow up, the Doctor stated that the CT Scan they did was one for diagnostics, and whatever was causing his pain was not urological, and sent us on our way once again. We can't keep going on like this, the constant pain is consistently getting in the way of my fiances life, and becoming very frustrating and troubling. Is there anyone that may have kidney stones, and other flank pain that may not be related to each other? OR a similiar situation that was met with results?! He is a 31 year old, smoker and coffee drinker. Also had his Gall Bladder removed 2 years ago. I really hope that there is someone within this forum that may have some opinions, ideas, thoughts, advice, or personal experience with this type of thing! Please feel free to ask questions as well, I'll answer just about anything providing I feel it would help us!
