kidney stones! I had Lipotripsy done last Thursday. March 22, staghorn stone. 11x14mm. My side has been hurting on and off for over three months having a history of kidney stones I know what it feels like when one is ready to pass. Finally after going to the doctor and begging them for a CT scan the staghorn was discovered with many other stones on my right side. Also discovered there is a staghorn stone on my left side that will be dealt with at a later time because it's not giving me any pain right now. The last thing I said to the surgeon before I went under words please do not put a stent in me. Well I woke up with the worst pain from the stent they just kept giving me morphine while I was at the hospital and then sent me home with medication of oxycodine-acetaminophen to be taken every four hours for pain. The first 24 hours were horrible it did not help the pain and the Oxsee just makes me feel so weird I do not like it . Now I am on day 4 and can feel the stent inside of me the pain is worse than the kidney stone. I have an appointment to have the stent removed 10 days from now not sure if I'm going to last that long have not passed any of the stones yet. I would like to call the doctor and asked for a different pain medication but I don't know if any if you have any suggestions I would mostly appreciate it .
