Re: Perc Neph (PCNL) Procedure For Kidney Stones??
Hi! I was supposed to have mine at the end of this month. Surgeons were going to do two surgeries during one hospital stay because I was also recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer. But, alas, it turns out I can't have the PCNL after all. I ended up in Pittsburgh and surgeon there said, with my clotting disorder and having to go back on my anticoagulants too soon after surgery, there is too high a risk of bleeding for me. So, for now, I'm scheduled to get the thyroid out on the 25th and we'll figure out what to do with the stone later. Fortunately, it's not giving me much trouble, so have time to wait.
I've been wondering how you're doing and am so glad you're finally getting your turn. Will be praying for you and am looking forward to hearing how it went and that you're doing well. Hang in there!
