ubiquitouslyme: (Happy)
Had surgery yesterday. They went to laser the kidney stone, to find it wasn't there anymore. So the stint's out, and I am heading back to normal. Hopefully things have stopped randomly going in and out of my body for now.

So, Wednesday I go to the outpatient center and have my big kidney stone zapped by a laser. I will be so glad when this is over. The laser must first be inserted through my urethra. Everything this past two weeks has involved so much stuff going in and out of my urethra. I know, TMI...

Feeling better today, and thanks for the hugs and whatnot. Still uncomfortable though, although the pain pills help with that. Finished my Christmas shopping online today, so that's good.

So, I went in for a CT scan yesterday. As of then I had a 4-5mm stone. Saw a urologist today, turns out I have 2 kidney stones, a very small one in the kidney itself, nicknamed Pluto, since it's not that big of a deal; and Jupiter, who is a 5-6mm stone in the bottom of the ureter (tube that runs from the kidney to the bladder) where it hits the bladder. Right now we're in the wait and see mode. If I don't pass it within a month or so, or I get in too much pain, he will go in invasively though the urethra, into the bladder, and zap it with a laser. Apparently they don't like to break up stones with a lithotriptor (uses sonic waves) in a child-bearing age female because it goofs something up.

Have you ever been to a urologist?A little TMI )

So that was the high point of my day...
