It seems my kidney stone (which I swear was the size of a fist!) has passed. I am not having the really severe pains that kept coming in waves. I now feel a bit weak and like a bad bruise in my left side but no more big pain. If it had not gone, then I would be facing an appointment with a urologist and possible surgery. The doctor said to call if it happens again and mentioned maybe other stones, but I said NO WAY!!
It seems Oregon has great water but it is also high in mineral content. The doctor suggests getting a filter of some kind that specifically works to filter out the minerals. I want to do that as do not want to buy bottled water over and over and add to the environmental problem.
I am so happy to be pain-free now. It was bad enough I spent 2 months with on and off sciatica pain, and then this. I have had enough pain to last the rest of my life (which I plan to live to 103!).
Now I think I should reward myself with a treat,...like a hot fudge sundae!! YEA!
