Stent Removed

Ugh, I had the stent removed today and out came some big stones right behind it!  I did not experience the relief of pain I expected.

Stent pain was bad as soon as I woke up and emptied my bladder.  Took Darvocet at 8am, Dilauded at 2pm and 6pm. Zofran at 6.

Amazing ER Visit Last Night

Kidney Stone




emergency room

Wow, I had a great visit to the ER. When I walked in, I started filling out the Triage form at the registration counter when I noticed the woman at the desk was reading my information as I wrote it and she got me registered before I was even done with the form.  She rushed me right into triage past waiting people! Then they triaged me and walked to straight to a room, I had an attentive, friendly nurse and a receptive Dr.  I left my house at 10:45 and was already receiving IV and Toradol  by 11:30! They kept me on IV fluids and checked my pain level until 3 am when I was confident I could handle my pain at home! They got me from a pain level of  8-9 to a 3 within an hour!

I had to go when 2mg Dilauded at 8pm  and a Darvocet at 9pm only reduced my pain from a 9+ to an 8.
The Triage nurse said taking a Darvocet after a Dilauded was like spitting in the ocean!  LOL.

I still did not pass it, but it has moved to a more comfortable area. I am able to handle it with just heat and rest right now.

UGH, I am tired of this!

My kidneys are achy, my hands and feet are swollen, my head hurts, the house is a mess,I am way behind on laundry, my daughter has an appointment with a new dr at 2pm, and there is a potential hurricane coming straight at us tomorrow. I feel so lousy I do not even have the energy to get ready for a hurricane.  DH has to go to work and I have to get it together to homeschool!
