[color=dodgerblue]The actions of the few are, once again, ruining it for the many.
I went to the hospital a few years ago with a kidney stone. I was 8 months pregnant and had recurring kidney stones for most of the pregnancy. Being
that I was pregnant, there wasn't much they could do beyond managing the pain and starting an IV in hopes that it would pass on it's own.
I arrived at the hospital and was never offered anything for the pain. I was crying, sweating, couldn't sit still, holding my side, etc. I was made to
submit to a drug test before they would give me anything. I passed a 4mm stone before the results of the drug test came back. After that, they kept me
for 12 hours and refused to let me eat or let me get up, or let me go home. I wasn't happy.
I have since suffered from pain in my side/back/hip continually. I have been to 2 general practitioners, a nurse practitioner, 3 urologists, a
nephrologist, chiropractor, the ER, etc. I had a cystoscopy and left ureteroscopy. I even had an exploratory laparoscopy. I have 2 ct scans one of
which revealed a stone but it was gone by the second scan. What did they find? Absolutely nothing. Since they can't diagnose the problem, they do
nothing for the pain. So I have just learned to live with it.
I have searched the far reaches of the internet to find any possible ideas. And nothing.
I think the drug addicts/abusers are most definitely ruining it for the rest of us who have actual pain. We get to suffer because people are pill
