you are welcome. Glad everything looks good, no stones. yeah
I had terrible pain in my left kidney about 5 years ago. Had the cat scan and x-rays. Found 5 stones. two in left, three in right. Between July 5 and the last weekend in Sept. I had 4 of them removed. The last one (2.2 cm) was scheduled for Oct. Well.....went in for emergency surgery because in that short amount of time my 2.2 went to a 10.5. This, thank god, is the last stone I have ever had. I had many before that and also had lots of uti's. Had the stents, lythotripsy, laser......I even had the 48 hour urine count. Was told to limit my proteins, kidneys cannot handle it properly. And, to follow up in a year. I never did. The whole idea of knowing there is a stone and always wondering when it was going to hit was just to much for me to bear. so, now, I just wait out the aches in my left kidney and if it changes or if the urine color changes I go over to my pcp for a quick urine check. So far, so good.
Had the thyroid issue too. functioned properly but was way to big. Doc took it out and found cancer. Had radioiodine therapy and am now on synthroid. Doing so much better but hate the hot flashes that come with being on higher doses of the synthroid (doc said it was necessary because of the cancer.)
Its funny but up till I hit 40 (50 now) I never had any health issues but now they seem to be piling on at a fairly fast rate.
I currently visit the fibro and lupus forum but almost never the kidney or sjogrens one - they seem to be much slower in responses.
Hope you have a good weekend and keep me posted on how you are doing. take care
