That sounds painful! I think I would ask my urologist if there's a special diet you need to be on to help... Although many of my friends have said diet didn't matter with their formation of recurring kidney stones. If you haven't gotten a scan to confirm stones I'd talk to the urologist about
getting that asap. When 3x posted that he about
passed out from the pain I remember I thought how bad can it be? And then one day I was falling of the toilet almost passing out.... Awful.
Yikes!!!!! Wow you are a kidney stone producing machine! No offense meant. They couldn't do the sound waves? I'll be saying extra prayers for you. Please let us know how it goes.
I've had another image done and the imaging company keeps seeing shadows on my left kidney. Apparently that shadow was there after... But not before... They lasered the kidney stone. They think it's a remaining fragment over 1mm. The urologist keeps saying he doesn't see it. This week... I got that scraping going thru the tube feeling I got last time... But so far nothing has come out. 🥴. So I sorta feel like I have a UTI coming on.. but I think it's that fragment.
I've actually upped the Estrogen cream from half a gram every other day to 3/4 gram every other day. Then a friend called and said that estrogen helps with osteoporosis. I've been wondering if I should ask my PCP to add the pills to the cream mixture. I have started struggling with joint pain in my shoulders and feet. Gosh I'm just falling apart in some ways...but the cream, dmannose and cranberry pills make me better but not quite all the way. I feel like I am just on the edge of a UTI....
I wonder if that stone fragment is making me feel that way or if I need more estrogen cream....hmmmm. Thoughts?
