Kidney Stone

Written by Kodi Wolf at 11:51 AM

I have a kidney stone. Isn't that fun?

Actually, I have two, but only one of them is making its way down the ureter (the tube from the kidney to the bladder), so that's the one that's causing me all the pain. I just can't wait until it gets to my urethra and I get to pee it out. According to the urologist my doctor sent me to, it should only take about a week. My doctor put me on Cipro (antibiotic), but the stuff is making me nauseous, upsetting my stomach, and giving me diarrhea, so I'm hoping he'll switch me to something more tolerable. The urologist also gave me this little mesh filter thing to pee into to make sure I catch the damn thing.

Well, I'm pretty much wasted, since all this messed up my already eratic sleep schedule. I woke up around 4pm Monday after only 6 hours of sleep. I had two bad bouts of pain at around 7pm and 11pm, then another at 8am Tuesday, just before I was going to go to bed, so I'd already been up for 16 hours when I ended up having to spend the rest of the day running around to doctors. Then I had the bad reaction to the antibiotic, so I didn't get to sleep until midnight last night. I took a few naps in the car and after I got home, but I effectively was up for 32 hours.

You know, I'm turning 31 in a couple weeks (11 days), and I just don't think my body is up for this kind of shit anymore. :) So, I'm going to go be a couch potato and see if I can't get a little more sleep.
