never mind - the barium didn't go down and what did didn't stay down. i couldn't drink it. i ended up having the injection for the CT scan. i don't know why they didn't just figure on that in the first place!
anyway, the results are that there is still some urine that had leaked from the tube that the body still hasn't reabsorbed yet, i have 2 infected cysts and a new small stone that has formed. all together this is making me sick and have lots of pain. just time - that's all we can do right now - time and anti-biotics. i also have 5 bigger stones in my right kidney. they're not hurting right now so we're just going to let them be for awhile and will eventually have to do an eighth lithotripsy to break them up. i guess i'm just a stone former. i can't believe i'm going to have to go through this my entire life. this sucks!
