I have had repeated kidney stones and kidney infections. Just returning from er with hemorrhagic cystitis and kidney infection. I am growing so tired of having these issues over and over and racking up bills over 20 grand with the urologist telling me nothing is wrong and there is nothing they can do. This is getting old!!! I had a ct scan and I have more kidney stones that have formed in the last 4-6 months. Some too big to pass. I feel like they are a ticking time bomb and when I ask my dr to have them removed they tell me nothing can be done or nothing is wrong. I have lost 2 jobs now because of this and I'm just at my wits end. Does anyone else have the same issues? This is my first time I have had hemorrhagic cystitis and I have been peeing blood for 3 days now before the pain started. Right now it feel so bad with headache and stomach ache behind my belly button and just general feel of poop. Please helpView Thread
Ive had many kidney stones but this one seems different. I got that familiar pain in my back sat and knew instantly what it was and decided to not go to ER. By mon I decided I could take no more and went. Dr. Said I have multiple stones and I had one passing right now. Well in the past the pain is excruciating then goes away once it reaches my bladder,not this time I have been in the same excruciating pain since sat only to have relief if constantly popping the pain meds ( over the recommended 1 every 6hrs. I have told the er dr that something is wrong and it's not moving but they keep saying oh its passing. To me it feels stuck my pain has gotten worse and it is making my stomach hurt too also getting harder to move around unless I have 4 pain pills in. What is going on? Has anyone else had this experience?View Thread
