Kidney Stones Suck

I have been VERY sick for the last couple of months. The whole ordeal started in September with a kidney infection. My doctor prescribed 10 days worth of antibiotics.
The first of October I was sick again. My doctor prescribed another 10 days of antibiotics. I was still sick after 10 days! My doctor changed antibiotics and prescribed another 10 days and ordered a CAT scan. The CAT scan found a 7mm kidney stone stuck in my ureter. My doctor referred me to a specialist in Shreveport.

The doctor in Shreveport decided I needed surgery to remove the stone. She checked my kidney function levels and they were good so we scheduled the surgery for Tuesday. I would already be out in Thanksgiving Break so I wouldn't have to miss school. 

On Friday, I was at school and I started having a lot of pain. I started vomiting and the pain pills would not help the pain at all. My husband took me to the emergency room and they ran blood tests and said my kidney function was not good. They admitted me to the hospital and did surgery on Saturday instead. I'm glad the whole ordeal is over. I am ready to start feeling better.

My kidney stone. They busted it up and took it out. This was a bad little stone!
