OUCH!

(For politics, please scroll down)

The ureteral stent which the surgeon placed on June 22 was yanked today. No sedation!

Here it is — the actual stent that was in my innards all that time:


And now you know why I haven't cared much about politics the past several weeks.

The only upside: I've lost 10 pounds.

  1. Did the "seasons greetings" card get stuck up there too? No. Don't answer that.

    1. Euripides,
      LOL!

      The pain from that stent might as well have been pain from a "season greeting" card stuck in my ureter.

      I'm trying.

      My husband is worried. Not scared, but worried.

    That thing looks to way only ounces.

    1. Ed,
      My mother used to tell me what I was dieting, "Don't diet yourself down to a stick. If you get sick, you might need something to draw on."

      Mom was right. I am still carrying about 10 more pounds that I can lose without getting too thin. After that, I'm in trouble!

      This is a living hell. I'm not exaggerating one little bit.

  5. The agony started at 2:00 A.M. today. The left kidney must be totally blocked again.

    As instructed yesterday by my surgeon: if I'm in agony today, I contact the physician on call. I"ll be making the call at 9:00 A.M.

  6. Okay, I've reached the doctor. He's had me dose up with every prescription pain killer I have on hand.

    He was not alarmed by my pain because this pain could be caused by the stent getting YANKED OUT yesterday.

    The Summer of Suffering grinds on.

    1. Baysider,
      I'm a stoic person when it comes to pain.

      But this round of kidney trouble -- hot and heavy for two solid months -- is beating me down.
