I went to the ER via ambulance today my left kidney was in such terrible pain I was unable to move. THey were afraid to do a CT scan ...since I have over 20 back in 2007...so they did an ultrasound and didnt see any however they tell me that the ultrasound isnt the best diagnostic tool for detecting stones since it wont pick up on small ones. My UA came back showing that I have a UTI and my symptoms I am having are showing it is a kidney infection in my left kidney and they actually had trouble watching the left uretur(sp?) pass urine from the kidney into my bladder.
I am 3000 miles away from that Dr now Sniper. I had no fever with my troubles today but the pain was so severe it caused me nausea to the point they had to give me zofran. They gave me Morphine for pain (4mg) and were about to give me the other 4mg and then my arm turned beat red and there was a nice allergic reaction that occurred so they gave me benadryl and Dilaudid ( I know same family but they said that most people if allergic to 1 are not to the other. I am a bit worried being that I just took my Humira yesterday.
It hurts to breathe deeply, the pain is constant but there are times it intensifies. I have no fever my BP was elevated though. I even have documentation about a "hyperdense lesion" in the lateral aspect of my right kidney in the med report (this is from my CT from 1-20-08 also states multiple small less than 4mm non obstructing stones in the right kidney
