Last night I was just feeling so awful. I knew it was my kidney from the recent signs. At 1am Tony called me and told me he was on his way home from work. By 2am, I was in excruciating pain, nothing the pain meds I had would help me with. So Tony called my sister-in-law and she came by and sat in the house while Tony took me to the ER.
It took the ER awhile before they gave me their drugs. However, right after they gave me the shot, I had pretty much the worse pain ever that even their drugs couldn’t control and then I didn’t have any pain at all.
Yes, I passed the stone. It was from my left kidney (the one with the two ureters.) It is triangular shaped. What a relief. I feel so much better, in absolutely no pain at all.
I feel like it is such a happy ending to my sick story. Hopefully that is the last of these things. (Prettty interesting that the doctor told me there wasn’t a stone in the left kidney and that is where this came from…)
Oh…and for those who are grossly curious…
Here is the #*%&#$ that passed.
Love the jagged large end and then the pointy triangular end…not really a big stone as it is only between 2 and 3mm, but I think it is the shape that was this ones problem.
Oh, and when I got to the ER, I was lucky. There was no one in the ER. It is a brand new ER, the waiting room was huge. I was taken to a bed almost immediately and was given meds within 30 minutes from when I got there. My blood pressure was 200 something over 100 something…really, really high, but I was assured that was normal for someone in that much pain. The total ER time only took 3 hours, which was really, really good. I have never been in and out of an ER that fast.
Oh, and to tell you how much pain it was, I asked Tony to google Exploding Kidney, as I was pretty darn sure my kidney was going to explode.
