I just want to know if you all think I passed a kidney stone. Here's what happened:
Found out Uncle was being taken off life support yesterday...upset and stressed all day
Later, started feeling nauseated thinking it was from the stress headache...took a Tylonol..no help and took a dramamine...didn't really help with the nausea
went to lay down and about 20 minutes later after rolling to my right side (which I have had a kidney stone in my left ureter for about 6 plus years now) and I started to feel an intense pain in my private area (clitoris to be exact) and I felt like I had to go to the bathroom.
Went to the bathroom, could go okay, not alot came out, and then my left kidney (in the kidney area only...no back) started to hurt. hubby thought my back was out of place which by now the pain was off and on in intensity to where it hurt to inhale and exhale and it brought me to my knees. Forced myself to lay on the floor so hubby could pop my back and that didn't help so I got into my hot tub and started to feel some relief. I still felt some of the pain in the private area which it felt like I had to pee so I did in the hot tub (I know it sounds gross, but I was not feeling well at all and thought it was the best thing because whatever was going on, I just wanted it out!) Anyway, after sitting in the hot tub for about 15 minutes, I got out and took my bathing suit and underware off (didn't have time to get everything off because of the pain going on) and when I took my underware off, there was this shiney little stone in my underware. I asked hubby if there was anything in the hot tub before I got in and he said no because he just got done wiping it down before I filled it with water.
Now, I was able to get out of the tub, the pain seemed to have subsided dramatically with like after effect little pain and I was able to take a shower okay. I asked hubby if he thought that could have come out from one of the jets (we have it in our bedroom) and he asked how it would have gotten into my underware through my bathing suit. So, today, I feel a little bit of the pain in the private area, not too bad...I can breathe without it hurting and my lower abdomen is really tender when I push on it.
Does this sound like I maybe pass my kidney stone after all these years? I was told by the docs that my stone was 1cm in size that that it was too large to pass. It supposedly sat in the lower left pole (wherever that is) and they said that it was lodged in there pretty good.
What do you think? I had such a tramatic day yesterday anyway, so I don't really know. Thanks to all who answer!!!!
