Good news: the Lithotripsy procedure today was a success. The better news,
Hydrocodone is still my best friend.
Spike Demon Stone has been obliterated (we think).
The procedure wasn’t even 45 minutes, and they blasted little Spike Demon Stone to smithereens. I woke up very sore on the left side, obviously. Since they basically used my kidney as a punching bag for this nifty sound wave contraption. I’m grateful I decided to have this procedure, because according to the surgeon, Spike hadn’t moved very far at all. In an entire month, he was still in same spot.
Stubborn little sucker.
After I was released, we came home, I had some food, and indulged in my new best friend.
More importantly, the meds kicked in about 10 minutes ago and I feel fabulous. Hopefully I’ll pass the remnants of Spike over the next 24 hours and all will be back to normal.
Just thought all of you wanted an update on my saga. Happy Dance time!
