Nephrostomy, Kidney Removal and Prednisone
The reader's digest version:  I have had a nephrostomy since July 7; I'm not draining much urine from it (only about 15cc a day) and so the plan is to remove my kidney.  Problem:  I've had an extremely severe case of poison ivy that actually started just before the surgery and still isn't completely under control.  I had a 12 day course of prednisone and am now on day 6 of a 15 day course.  My kidney removal was supposed to happen on Aug 6, but now they have put it off b/c of the prednisone.  I wondering how long I'll have to wait, whether or not I can get the nephrostomy out while I'm waiting...basically I'm impatient with the pee bag, especially since there's almost no pee in it and it is, literally, a pain in the back.
