| | kidney stones/bladder pressure HELP!
Hi. My name is Allie and I'm new to healthboards. I was in ER Monday night from 4am until 11am, and was diagnosed with kidney stones after two catscans. I was heavily drugged, and released. By the time the drugs wore off, most of the pain was gone. It's two days later, and I've been straining my urine but haven't caught anything yet. The only thing I'm still feeling is a heavy pressure in my bladder. I'm constantly feeling like I have to pee really badly, but when I go to the bathroom, very little comes out. I'm drinking as much water as I can, and like I said, I'm not feeling much pain (other than little twinges) in my kidneys anymore, but this bladder pressure is horrible.
Is this normal for kidney stones? I haven't scheduled a follow up appointment yet, as I don't have insurance and I'm already terrified of that ER bill (with two scans, YIKES!) ... any information anyone could give me would be very helpful. I looked through both this forum and the urology forum and I didn't see anything that had anything to do with this. Thanks in advance for your input.
