So on Wednesday morning I was woken up out of sleep with horrible 10 out 10 flank pain, abdominal cramps and nausea. When I went to the ER I was diagnosed via ultra sound with one 6mm kidney stone in my ureter along with a couple there stones still in my kidney. as if the 6mm wasn't bad enough shakehead While I was there I was given Fentanyl which did absolutely nothing, and then I was given the wonderful toradol that is an anti inflammatory and a non narcotic. my 10 out of 10 was now a 4 out of 10. they sent me home with toradol, flomax, and hydros. at the the time they said my stone was to close to the kidney for them to intervene so they gave me an appointment 3 weeks from now confused that day I made sure I bought lemonade, orange juice, lemons, and other fresh fruit. for the whole 6 days every morning I drank orange juice mixed with lemonade. I tried my hardest to drink one bottle of water or more every 1 1/2 to 2 hours, overtime it hurt I took a sip. which the first 3 days the pain was always there. I even broke down a couple times and took a hydro when the toradol wasn't enough. and now for the nasty part.... for day 1 and 2 I tried a home remedy I found on google (lol) it called for twice a day drinking 4 ounces of pure lemon juice mixed with 4 ounces of olive oil wait 5 minutes and drink a cup of water. sounds disgusting right? to bad I was desperate. I could honestly just taste the lemon juice. well anyways every time I drank the concoction I could feel the pain increase several minutes later. IDK if it made it move or what. anyways Saturday I had 0 pain nothing the whole day, Sunday and Monday I had slight pain. then Tuesday day 6 I was up at 3am with horrid pain, I took my flomax and toradol, laid on my heating pad and fell asleep. woke up still had pain my co worker whose an NP suggested since it was almost a week to go the ER be admitted and they would have someone blast it and put in a stent the next day. again another ultra sound expecting to be told the bad news The doctor came in and told me it must've just made it to my bladder cause they saw no stone and the rest of the other stones were no longer visible! I asked why I was in pain they said I had a lot of fluid build up ( from a stone blocking) that it literally just left the ureter. Was it the flomax, the lemonade with orange juice everyday or the olive oil with lemon juice? I have no clue. Im not recommending any of this I'm just saying what I tried
