Went to the urologist thinking even though I didn't see any pieces of stone pass out that they just crushed it up real good and the stent was going to be removed. Unfortunately no, the stone is still there and still the same size. So now we have to do a 3rd surgery. This time he is going to back in to get it and I still have my stent. He said even though it's so uncomfortable for me that he needs it to stay in because it's keeping me open. The stone is in an obstructing area and if he removed the stent I would be back at the hospital in severe pain and not being able to urinate. I'm kinda frustrated about it all now. Also to add another problem is I always have protein in my urine and that's a sign of lupus nephritis. So there may be additional problem to deal with concerning my kidneys. Protein in my urine was a sign that the doctor had me to get testing don't to see if I had lupus. It's just all overwhelming having Sjögren's syndrome, lupus, fibromyalgia, three herniated disks in my back, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis, GERD, fibroid tumors, torn cartilage in both knees, anxiety and depression. And no health insurance to see specialists I need to see and pain management I severely need. Right now due to my kidney stone my urologist is prescribing me Percocet 7.5 every 4 to 6 hours as needed and it has been helping with my other pains that I have due to the other health issues so that's let's me know I really need pain management to be able to deal with my everyday pain and and have just a little bit better quality of life. I can do a little more daily activities than before. So everyone please keep me in prayer and I thank you all for your support and listening ears. Because I don't complain to my family when I'm hurting and I'm always pushing myself sometimes too much and I wish they would understand that I'm in pain and tired a lot.
