I had a kidney...

I had a kidney stone the end of January, I still have pain on my side and I still have a stone! I had a ct scan and the stone is 5mm and my doctor says it’s not big enough to be causing problems. I don’t understand what is causing my pain!

Doctor's Assistant: When did the pain begin? Have you used any medication for it?

It started the end of January! I took hydrocodon for pain for awhile but didn’t want to stay on it!

Doctor's Assistant: Have you used anything besides Hydrocodone for this?

No

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
