An Evening At the Hospital

A Human Kidney

Kidney Beans

Well, yesterday my kidney decided to rebel after having its friend "The Stent" removed.  The hole left in the kidney was having spasms and trying to close up.  I called the doctor and he said to come into the hospital.

While there, I had the following things done:
1. Blood work
2. Ultra sound:  They found that I had fluid backed up into my right kidney.  That's not good.  The doctor said that if there is no drainage, I would have to have surgery to replace the stent and also place some tubes through my back to drain the fluid.

At this point I was BAWLING!  I could not handle any more surgery.

3. Sent for another CT Scan.  This was to see if there was any movement from kidney to bladder.  While waiting for them to tell me I could go home, I was in so much pain that I almost made a bed for myself on the dirty carpeted waiting area.  Terry was very patient with me.

So, I finally got home around 7 o'clock and got some pain medication in me.  I've felt much better since then.
