Just had Kidney stones waved shocked, feel re-traumatized!
Yesterday, I had a kidney stone wave shocked and grounded in my right kidney. I know they had to put a tube down my throat, cause once I got into the water, I kept coughing since I do have asthma. My tongue is soar but the worse part besides pain, is the trembling again. I never let the trembling entirely go, still going through that with PTSD. But after the surgery, I'm feeling anxious again, trembling, etc. Some of you know me here on the board, others don't, but I'm the one who suffers PTSD from a car accident and my brother's recent death. I'm trying not to think negatively, but my body feels terrorized and I don't know why! Can anyone relate here? I don't want to start this hyperviligance again or panic attacks. I was raped, but that was when I was 15. I'm not 45 almost 46. I've been in therapy since the end of March and that was going good for me. I just dont' understand why I'm feeling like this after surgery? Do you think that the body contact with instruments or going down my throat while I was out of it re-traumatized me? Do you think it could be the Viocodin? A little help would be greatly appreciated.
