Did I tell you guys about my kidney scare last week? In case I didn't... to make a long story short, I saw my urologist, ultrasound and xray were clear, and I was sent home on antibiotics for a UTI.
This morning at work, I was suddenly overcome with left flank pain. I have a pretty high tolerance, and I'm not just saying that. This floored me though. Chills, nausea, the works. I even came close to passing out. At that point, the nurse I was working with insisted I go down to ER, so she loaded me up in a wheelchair, and off we went.
Verdict after CT scan?
Fucking kidney stone (pardon my french). This little bastard is only 3mm, unlike my previous monster stones, so I will have to pass this one. Luckily, the pain has subsided for the better part of the afternoon. My back started twinging again right as I was checking out of the ER, but I made it home to swallow a Vicodin before it got out of hand. And I get the joy of straining my urine till I pass the darn thing.
On the plus side?
207.5 this morning! Can you say new low? WHEE!
