Sorry I haven't posted in awhile; I've been extremely busy at school and have been going through a very rough time with issues involving my sick time at school. My stent has been quite bothersome; my dr and I talk weekly and he changes my spasm meds and dose to see if it helps but so far it hasn't. I'm probably going to have it removed and have a new one put in called a tail stent. This one is larger at the top and tapers at the bottom so it might not cause the bladder spasms.
Elizabeth-You and your students are in my prayers. I too have students in my classroom who were sent home this week with high fevers. We have some confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus, this is very scary for me as I do not have a spleen and tend to pick up illnesses very easily.
Laurie-I hope and pray that you can put off having stents put in, I know how much you dislike them. Praying that your pain will ease.
