Sorry to hear of your and the other DCers' ills. May it be that your nightmarish episode is now past tense. That surely stinks/stank/stunk.

One of those words that no one seems to be sure of. I understand completely.

No. All my issues are South of the kidneys.

I'm back from the removal process and feel great! It was immediate 100% relief. I feel normal again except for some residual soreness in the "area".

Wow Andy it sounds pretty bad to be sick in your part of the world. My husband has been unwell with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma for two years, he had a donor bone marrow transplant 7 months ago and so far all tests are cancer free, but believe me I totally sympathise with the catheters and pain and horribleness of illnesses. We have never encounted anyone as inept at their job as that dr you described. I have a Paramedic background and worked very remote areas for many years, this site seems to attract medically trained people. I'm glad to hear you are feeling better, drink heaps of water as you have prob been told.

Thanks, HCL. I hope your husband continues with good health.

To clarify, it was the assistant who mishandled the Dr's directions.

Actually kidneystones don't generally hurt at the kidneys, or even necessarily start there. They hurt throughout the urinary tract. Believe me, I know.

I am just curious. There have been tons of ads on TV for the new catheters. Did they use one on you? the soreness will pass. I take it that this is the first time you had to have a catheter. Here's hoping it is the last time.

I am sooo glad you are feeling better. My DIL has cancer of the bladder many years ago. They built her an artificial bladder. She was never able to learn to urinate on her own again. So she had to use catheters every day. At the beginning she couldn't get the hang of it. So my son had to do it for her. One day when he had his eighth heart attack, he was in the hospital. DIL came in with her paraphernalia, climbed up on his bed and son proceeded to insert her catheter and drain her bladder. The nurse walks in and couldn't believe what she was seeing.

Andy, sounds like you might want to eat some Stonyfield organic yogurt to compensate for the side effects of the antibiotics.
