Sorry - SuniDazesm - adition to my post - Experienced thyroidecyomy in 2001 plus now so many probs, am unable to work & on Disability. My HBP is not controlled (178/121 avg) even though on approx 5 HBP meds. Cardiologist thinls all due to kidney issues but urologist says "no". In constant pain, all vit levels depleted & feel miserable. PEASE HELP!!
OK gal, I'm a 69 year old male with many, many years of kidney stone history too, so we've got that in common. I had to have surgery too to remove my first stone because it was so big and went the stent route at that time and one other time too. Over the last 35 plus years and all the stones I've had, most of my stones have passed on their own however. In the Spring of 2014 however I had an experience with misread cat scans and misdiagnosed kidney stones that caused me months of pain and a urine stream that at times was what looked like pure blood. All of that took place at a VA Hospital and I finally had enough! I did what I recommend you do and I CHANGED DOCTORS and got the proper treatment. In my case, I went to a civilian Urologist and had the necessary surgery to remove the THREE stones that were causing me those problems. Most all of my treatment at the VA has been great, but this episode really was bad and later they admitted they misread my cat scan and should have done a different treatment regiment. YEAH!! YA THINK!! Anyway, go to another doctor immediately. This new one of yours sounds like he/she doesn't know what they are doing and get yourself another opinion!!
