Looking for some help with a medical issue I am having. In may of this year I was told I had a 7mm stone in my left kidney. After lots of effort to get my 5'4 115 lb body to pass the stone, I was finally sent in for surgery on in the beginning of August. After the urologist blasted the stone he placed a stint in, where it stayed for two weeks. I had a lot of pain while the stint was in, but he said I had excessing swelling and it had to stay. After he tool the stint out he said I would be hurting for about a week. Two weeks later I went back in because I was in 24/7 pain. He thought I had another stone so I went in for another CT scan. When the results came up with no stone, he referred me back to my primary doc and told me I was fine. Since I had the stone blasted, 2 1/2 months ago, I have been in pain every single day. It is radiating from below my kidney and it gets a crap ton worse when I drink anything. I am getting a second opinion from a different urologist but the appt isnt for another week. None of the meds help, heating pads, baths, nothing. Sometimes its a stabbing pain, other times its a pulsing pain. Does anyone know what this could be if its not a kidney stone? At least when I had the stone it would go away for a little while, this pain I have now never goes away, just dies down a little and then gets stronger every day as the day goes on. Any help or words of advise would be appreaciated. I am desperate for some answers!
