Kidney stone? Who knows?



Recommended Posts

Well I did it. Hauled myself off to gp then Emergency coz I'm 90% sure i have a kidney stone.

Praise God I got seen relatively quickly but xray didn't show stone. I do have an infection though. Got bounced up to gynae who are pretty sure colicky pain isn't from the Mother of All Fibroids sitting there (which I can feel oh so much better since losing 20kgs - it's like a bloomin bowling ball in my belly).

So, they sent me home with buscopan, augmentin and best wishes. Waaaa I'm still pretty sure it's a kidney stone!

Keep your fluids up high, make that critter swim for its life.
Hey while I have your attention the Columbus Ohiomosque had a Open Mosque over the weekend , had a very nice turnout , the Iman said we may do this more often. Had a lot of Somali relocating there, not as big community as Minneapolis Minn. , that's largest group there.

I'm even giving @Matt_Z a run for his money in the drinking Water stakes.

Lovely to hear about the mosque open day! Definitely good for meeting neighbours and building bridges!

They've given me an outpatients appointment in the new year. Not sure really coz it's not doing much. I'm not getting any problematic fibroid symptoms like excessive bleeding and clotting, so, dunno if there is much point doing anything to it.

Thanks [emoji106] yeah I went to my GP before the emergency dept yesterday - it's kinda how it works here. I had stones about ten years ago and it is no joke that is for sure.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
