Well the stone is still in place. Because it's not in my kidney, they can't do the procedure where they use sonar to blast the stone into smaller pieces. They are going to have to do surgery. (warning - gory details below).
They will insert a tube in through my urethra and break the stone up and pull the pieces out. Then they will insert a stent to keep the urethra open - to avoid it swelling shut.
The pre-op appt is Wednesday. Surgery is Thursday, under general anesthesia, on an out patient basis. I'll have the stint in a few days.
My mom is scheduled for a visit Wednesday. So she is going to meet me at the doctors for my preop. That ought to be fun (sarcasm). Thursday my husband will escort me through surgery.
So, paid the COBRA insurance, paid the deductible, lost 1 week of wages, lose 2 more days this week. What fun it is to be me!
