I have to say I havent had as much trouble with my ER as I have read in many of your post, and I am truely sorry for that since I completely understand the pain. When I had my first stone it never left my kidney and to me that proves that they dont have to leave the kidney to cause pain other wise I would have never known it was there. Plus I had ever text book symtom with that one but yet in never moved down. so for those of you that have been told the ones in your kidney cant be causing your pain, you have been lied to and need to find another doc. I got my first one a year ago and I am now dealing with my 5th one which two months ago I was told it was 6mm, and now that I am starting to have more and more pain with it I am afraid to find out how big it has got.
I now dont have insurance and so the ER is my only relief but I just found out that most free clinics do have a urologist that can see you. ours is only on tuesday so I have to wait a few days but I thought maybe this would be some good info for ppl that dont have insurance and are using the ER not getting any results. Good luck everyone!View Thread
