    Wednesday I went to see the Urological Doctor. The kidney stone in my urinary track ( ureter ) will not pass by itself and Its to low in the track to use the shock wave procedure. Also am sick and tired of dealing with this damn pain. That its time for plan B and have surgery. It is call the Ureteroscope method of removing large and difficult stones In the lower urinary track.

    A ureteroscope looks like a long wire. The doctor inserts it into the patient’s urethra, passes it up through the bladder, and directs it to the ureter where the stone is located. The ureteroscope has a camera that allows the doctor to see the stone. A cage is used to catch the stone and pull it out, or the doctor may destroy it with a device inserted through the ureteroscope. By the way its inserted through the penis.

    Thursday I went to the hospital to get a EKG of my heart and blood work done. Friday I went to get a Ultrasound. Also I got a prescription for antibiotics that cost me $36.00 dollars. ( three pills ) I have to start taking them Sunday night. All in the preparation for Mondays surgery.

    I put my priorities in place just in case something goes wrong. Better safe then sorry. I been out of work for close to three weeks now. To tell you the truth I cant wait to get back to work. When I first went to my primary doctor three weeks ago, he gave me a prescription for a screen to catch the stone. It looks like a funnel with screen on the bottom. Every time I go to the bathroom I had to urinate through the funnel. It feels like am changing the oil in my car every time I use it.

    So guess what just happen. I just pass that damn stone. I went to urinate and I hear something hit the funnel I look down and BAMM there’s the stone. What a relief. No surgery after all. Ugly little stone as big as a eraser on a pencil. So I guess I will put it into a baggy and bring it to the doctors office on Monday. I still have discuss with the Doctor about the other stone that’s in my kidney. He said with that stone he can use the shock wave procedure to remove it. So am not going to worry about it. Now I can get my life back to normal.

    Thanks

    I am glad to hear that. The procedure you just described sounds pretty uncomfortable. At least now you will get some relief.:)

    I had kidney stones back in June, the shockwave procedure is a piece of cake and you’ll have IMMEDIATE relief from your pain 🙂
