DR CHIP I AM TRYING TO SPEAK WITH YOU BUT IT KEEPS GIVING ME SOMEONE ELSE AND THEN THEY ASK FOR ME TO PAY FIRST. I PAY MONTHLY NOT EVERY TIME. I AM ON THE PHONE RIGHT NOW WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE ASKING FOR HELP.
My urine test came back normal. I have an appt with the urologists on Friday and I wll get a KUB before I go. I think I may be trying to pass a stone. My back doesn't hurt but every once in a while my left and right side hurt some. WOW I am surprised not to get a response from you customer service said they made this a high priority. Well I am getting tired so I can not stay awake much longer.
Thank you for responding but I would like to wait for him to come back online. He has helped me more then any doctor I have ever seen in person.
Thank you again.
I am back at home now. Sorry but I was working out of town all week.
Anyways the pain the in back has subsided. Not much pain anywhere else right now either. I will be seeing a urologists tomorrow afternoon and I will get a KUB before I go to the appointment.
The nurse called me and said the urine test was normal.
That is weird to me because she told me the day I took the test that I do not have a UTI but it shows positive for something else and they sent it to a lab for further testing
yes it is gone. But I have been flushing myself out with cranberry juice, water, cranberry pills and AZO pills 3 times a day. The pain first started about a week ago with like labor pain all through the lower back area. Then a day later the left back area started hurting and feeling feverish. Now that pain in my lower left back has hurt before even afte I passed the kidney stone in 2010 I always though there was something wrong with that kidney but I am not sure the urologists told me it was nothing but I don't know.
its something when it hurts pretty bad. It hurts a little bit right now but not real bad. I felt like the celebrex took the inflammation out of what ever it was and helped.
Well lets hope that the KUB shows nothing. I don't want anymore stones.
Doctor would the KUB show an enlarged kidney?
Because the last time I had stones in 2010 they told me and showed me the 10mm stone was lodged in the urether and was backing urine in the kidney and they told me it was enlarged then from that.
5 or 6 years I had 3 or 4 of them.
It was lodged for about a couple of weeks.Maybe a little longer because I went to the ER and they referred me to a urologists. Then they said look we need to do lithotripsy on you in its to big to come out.
It may have been a month or 6 weeks I can't remember because I had to wait for the doctor to come into town who does the lithotropsy. But I don't think it was lodged the whole time because they were telling me they were in the kidney.
okay that is good. Well we will know more tomorrow this female PA urologists is very SHARP. The real Doctor urologists told me I was good to go no more stones she looked at my chart the next day and said for me to come in right away and told me it had traveled and was at least a 9mm stone that was lodged. So maybe the KUB help with what is going on if its not kidney what the heck is it then?
Ok Doctor thank you for speaking with me tonight. Tomorrow I will get back with you regarding my test and appt.
Have a great evening!!
One more thing the reason why I think its my kidney is because it appears when i increase my fluid a lot the pain does seem to go away.
