Pardon my typing beforehand as I'm awfully groggy and in pain, but as some of you had known, I've been having kidney stone issues. FINALLY I am on the road to resolving it-- on Sunday my pain was so awful that I had my mother drive me to the emergency room.
I had never been hospitalized before, so it was a terrible experience. Long, arduous, tedious... I had very little sleep. Thankfully I'm finally home again today, but I go back in tomorrow.
I had to get a stint put in to open up the pathway to my kidney easier. Tomorrow they're going to insert a small telescope and send shockwaves through my biggest stone, 7mm, to break it up. After that I have to leave the stint in until sometime next week.
It was an awful experience and I hope I never have to go through it again. As an emetophobe, I was incredibly nervous the entire time, and kept scaring myself because I had never thrown up so much in such a short amount of time in my life. Thankfully that's mostly over with now.
Now I'm just waiting for my pain meds to kick in so I can go back to sleep. Just thought I'd fill people in on what's been going on with me.
