Evening everyone, hope today has been somewhat kind & gentle on all of you. 🤞🏻💛
I've been trying to write this post all day! Battling through the pain..
Anyway, I managed to speak to my doctor today. She couldn't fit me in to see her, but she could talk to me over the phone..
I mentioned my agony in regards to my side/back pain before & after urinating & *foamy dark coloured urine, * passing what seems to be dark coloured skin tissue * bubbles in the pan* radiating pain around my side that doesn't ease with painkillers, * feeling sick & Sweating more than usual. I'm waking up at night weeing loads, sometimes I urgently rush to the toilet for only a trickle to come out. I sit on the toilet & wait until I can wee. The pain is terrible.
She said she'd leave me some antibiotics as it sounds like I have yet another kidney infection & a possible stone. I passed a stone on NYE 16/17 it took 5 weeks & I did it at home I was told I could get another in 5 years not 7 months later!
Dropping a urine sample into my Surgery tomorrow as requested.
I've been asking for her help for 3 weeks. Just a shame that I had to break down in tears for her to sympathise with me.
I have been given a weeks course of Trimethoprim Oral Suspension antibiotics.
I spoke to the pharmacy this evening & they haven't got any in. & they haven't & won't have any more for a several months.?! Apparently all surgeries were made aware of the shortage..
So as I cannot have them I now have to try and get hold of my GP to see if she can give me a different antibiotic.
At least she listened this time, just hope I can sort this issue out & start the antibiotics because it's been 3 weeks of chronic kidney pain. & infections to me seem to be 💯 % worse than just a simple infection.. my whole body goes down with it.
When it rains it pours.. 😞
