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
