Sorry I've not been around for a few days but been in hospital as emergency admission. It boils down to what was thought to be a kidney infection,treated with 2 lots of antibiotics, didn't get better. One day and a scan and it's revealed I have big (+1cm)kidney stones - one on each side. They've been blocking normal kidney flow, which is why most recent tests have tumbled. I had surgery yesterday morning and they removed the smaller stone and have left a stent in the other to dilate access to the other stone so they can laser zap it in a few weeks. Staff have been great,though over worked to the nth degree, but I still hate staying in hospital. Fortunately the upcoming zapping session will only be day surgery, fingers crossed.
For the first time in several months the pain in my back is being adequately controlled with the right meds. Bliss - and to have a bath,hair wash and fresh clothes is just...One brilliant thing at this hospital,and I've never met it before, is that you can self-medicate. Your drugs are in your locker in your room and you have the key. So much better for someone like me with my over 40 tablets a day, some PRN.
I hope to be able to pop over here most days,and promise I won't go on at such length! Love and hugs to you all.
