Re: kidney stones(chronic)
Wow I just readyour story and went through the whole link. Out of all the doctor's I have gone to , not one has offered to give me tests like the one's mentioned. I wrote them all down. I have an appoitment next week with a pm Dr. Hes out of town, but I dont know what to expect. What kind of med's do you think they will put me on? For a person who gets 3-7 stones a month? I dont even always go to the Dr or ER when I get stones, sometimes I just do it on my own. I dont know what it is with my town(Ocala, Florida) but all the doctors are afraid to right scripts for pain med's. They will give me 30 pill's..well sometimes it takes 2-6 weeks for me to pass my stones. I just dont get it, you have a cat scan with a 5 ml stone on it and the ER gives you 10 pills and the Urologist gives you 30. He says you have to have a repeat cat scan to get more. So I i have to get 4 scans a month? That seems like alot to me and I am afraid i will get cancer. I Am tired of the cat scans. I just want the meds to be comfortable and I want more answers than well you have a calcium stone.I have never been offered tests. we have 4 urologists in town and I have been to all 4 and got the same treatment. What will I expect from the PM Dr.?? Thanks for all the huge amount of info btw. Your situation is awful, I dont know if I could handle it.. Anyway will wait for your reply..
