I found out last week that both my kidneys are full of "small" kidney stones. I'm feeling bad from the resulting infection, but the major pain hasn't hit yet. I've got the Vicadin and I'm ready! I've had one at a time before but never like this. I'm being referred to a nephrologist...ever heard of it? I hadn't. Apparently that's a kidney or renal specialist. All I can do is sit and wait because you don't call them for an appointment. They get your records, evaluate & discuss, and then THEY call YOU with your appointment time. Let's hope it's soon.....I wanna get this cleared up and over with!
