I am not sure why they are waiting so long, and I have no clue where they are in my kidney, the x-ray showed only 1 stone so I hope it passes on it's own someway somehow (I think they lie I drink a TON of water and still nothing). I have to be pre-approved to get the ultrasound done so I am STILL waiting for them to call me and i was going to go back to the dr's because the pain is getting worse.
I am not sure if it's normal or not because I know everyone is different BUT, this has been going on since about Jan I'd say and I thought it was just my back because I have a bad back so they told me to take pain meds and come back fast forward to 2 months ago 3 diff visits to the ER for various problems (rash due to liver, high blood sugar, and this pain i've been having in my lower ab area) and all 3 times I have had blood and have been dropping ketones in my urine (although my blood sugar has been fine still dropping ketones). So basically they found my kidney stone on accident....I asked the dr to check for stones since I had pains that are in my lower back/sides/extending to front so bad that I cannot even sleep well. So she does an xray and says I have a 4mm stone in my left kidney (the side that hurts so bad). So pretty much what's the same as far as symptoms go is the pressure/pain in lower ab area, burning sensation at the end of urinating, feeling of pressure on my urethra area, urgency to urinate (they keep testing and I don't have a UTI although I have symptoms of one), have had "dribbles" a couple of times, and nausea....what's changed is the pains is now worse, the burning feels constant now no matter what I do to try and make it go away, I can visibly see tea/orange colored pee (assuming from the blood), and the nausea is worse (I salivate as if I am right about to vomit then nothing comes out).
Yes this is horrible I'm tired of all the damned CONSTANT pain and I can't take ANY pain meds now because of my liver (wating for ultrasound on this also). So yeah this is horrible
But life goes on, I just wish I knew what exactly is wrong with me.
