Hi my name is Robin.


Ok, my story. I have IBS, major knee reconstruction ( 2 bolts and a 6'' rod ), and kidney stones/ bladder spasms. I'm in constant pain 24/7 and am getting pretty tired of it. Yes, I'm getting cranky LOL.


I was invited over here by sweet Cheri ( hey lady! ) and I hope to find some advice on not having to take pain pills all the time ( Vicoden ES ).


Well, that's it in a nutshell. I hope to get to know y'all !


Hugs,


Robin

Hi !


Basically, I'm in a holding position on what they can do for me. The stones are going to get more Lipthotripsy in October again. I have to heal from the first one, then they can help me. The doc told me that if we push it and move up the date I could loose my kidney and have perm. bladder troubles.


Nothing is really helping right now. Hot packs, pain meds, rest, water, and such are mostly like a band-aid. Sigh, what doesn't kill ya only makes you stronger ... I guess.


Sorry, I'm extremly cranky today. I'm soooooo sick of stupid people !!!


Hugs,


Robin

Hi Robin it's nice to meet you!It's always rough to live with pain 24 /7 .Is there anything you find that helps? can you exercise in warm water without too much pain?Can't they find something to help with your kidney stones to get rid of them?That sounds miserable!Of course your tired of it all demand some help from your family doctor that's what I finally did after much complaining my doctor finally realized the problem had gotten worse and actually gave me something that's helping a little with all the inflammation I've been having. If nothing else come and vent with us will hear you out ! Gentle hugs and a warm welcome shilleagh
