5 weeks ago I first encountered the pain we all know as being a kidney stone, although I didn't know it at the time. I ended up in hospital and after a CT scan confirming it I was discharged with diclofenac and instructions to drink lots of water as it was small (3mm). Come the following Wednesday night into Thursday morning the pain had got much worse and this time I was kept in for a ureteroscopy the next day. During the procedure a stent was also put in. I wasn't given much information as to what to expect and being the time of person that I am (I have Asperger's and tend to have questions after I've had time to think things through, I found out more checking on the internet. Much of what I learnt explained some of the things I was feeling and what was happenning and so put my mind at rest. The Wednesday after the procedure I was back at work for less than an hour when I took really ill and ended up heading to hospital again. I had a urine infection and so was sent off with antibiotics. All was fine until last Tuesday when I was attemtping to get a tooth seen to when I started feeling faint and in pain in the kidney again. I'm still in quite a level of pain now with and extra painkiller. I'm now an paracetamol and tramadol 4 times a day topped up with ibuprofen at meal times 3 times a day. I'm also on tamsulosin which i was put on while in hospital for the procedure.Just wondering if I should make a call with still being in pain. I live in Scotland.
