Hi Tummyblogger. Believe it or not, my right kidney (which is the one that is aching like crazy), is smaller than the left which is normal size. It has been since I was very young, they're not sure if it was a birth defect or due to the incapacity to function properly the infections caused it to stop growing properly.
I have decided to call the urologist tomorrow (I had just faxed through the x-ray and ultrasound results to him as five kidney stones - the words for where these stones are make no sense to me - showed up). Now with this pain, I'm wondering if these stones are passing at a very slow rate causing all this pain down in the lower abdomen. I'm no doctor, so I don't want to make any assumptions.
Hopefully, he'll be able to see me quickly to find out if there's anything to be concerned about on his part. We just went through deciding not to remove the kidney unless infections started up frequently again.
I sure hope to be getting an answer on this soon. Very confused about who to go to and who to trust ... homeopath, family doctor (who is doing nothing), urologist ... it's very confusing to me. Wish I was more medically inclined.
Anyway, thanks for the "warning". I appreciate it.
