I'd like to wish Dr Moser a speedy recovery from his kidney stone surgery! If you had the operation today like it was scheduled, I hope everything went your way and that you are on your way to feeling better!
Thank you. I had the surgery yesterday, but......IT FAILED. I am still "stoned" and you can be sure that I will be blogging about it!
Now....just because I am posting and blogging, in now way implies that I am cured. If I didn't have my WebMD obligations to distract me from my pain....my disappointment if this treatment failure....and to take up my free time now that I am not working....I would go NUTS.
Posting and blogging is part of my personal treatment plan....
Soooo sorry your procedure didn't rid you of the 'stone' problem! You must be miserable! You've 'lent' an ear to me so many times and now it's my turn to tell you you're in my thoughts and I hope you feel better very soon! yanksgirl
I might as well have a ball and chain hanging from my ankle. The fact that the stone is still with me is like a prison sentence; a prison where they continually torture me.
I am making a lot of noise, but so far, no one has come up with a quick fix (it has been two months!). I can't blame delays on insurance since I work for the group that insures me. I can blame some of it on the lack of equipment (my group only gets to use the lithotripsy machine for one day, once a month), assuming the emergence of a kidney stone matches this schedule, and they have "room" to treat me.
Is this a serious question? If so, you need to be a bit more specific and start a NEW DISCUSSION. If you truly have a wasp still in your ear, I would suggest that you seek medical care immediately, and not wait until you get an on-line response.
Rod, i always heard that doctors and nurses make the worse patients. I have a few doctors and many nurses coming in for meds and as always i strike up a conversation. Seems like the only doctors to open up and talk are Doctors of theology. Nurses they talk all the time. I'm glad you can at least do your blogging to keep you from going batty. I hate being laid up for a time. Hope the dogs are being easy on you, Take care, ~Deach~
I agree that medical people are not the best patients, namely since we know what can go wrong. We tend to focus on complications, side-effects, etc. I was sure glad that I noticed the wrong antibiotic before it was administered....that would not have been good. I had an anaphylactic reaction to one pill in the past, and this was a HUGE dose being prepared to be administered intravenously.
Everyone makes mistakes but this is one of the easiest mistakes to avoid. They asked my name a dozen times and even made me spell it, but not once, did they ask about medication allergies.
