Re: Perc Neph (PCNL) Procedure For Kidney Stones??

sorry 3cm Too big to pass and it's in what they call "the meat" of the kidney so this is the only way to do it, I have been told this by my urologist and I know if there was another way she would do it and not send me 2.5 hours away, I havent heard from the hospital yet, still waiting, she thinks it would be a good idea to put me on a low dose antibiotic till the surgery so I don't get another infection, right now I'm on #5 this one is for a lymthnode infection in my neck, it sucks I am 34 years old and a mother of three 2,8,14 and my husband works long hours so when I'm down and out (sick) it's hard on the whole family. I like reading about others so I don't feel so alone in this. Thank you for writing to me!!!
