Hello and hope you are doing well.
I gather you have been having regular periods, and this time it has been delayed by two months. This could be because of the ongoing infection and antibiotics. Emotional stress and prolonged illness can delay the cycle. Once in awhile the cycle behaves differently for no apparent reason and settles down by itself. You will need to take a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. Delayed periods can also be due to hypothyroidism and PCOD. So, if it persists consult your doctor for an evaluation.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Hi,thank you for your response. I got my period yesterday :) finally. I'll be back in hospital next week to remove the stent - then I'll discuss this problem with my doctor...
Since there are several posts on Kidney stones, Id like to share my research results that could possibly afford relief to kidney stone sufferers. I am a recently retired ICU RN and I did not realize until now how important Magnesium is in our lives. Its important to know whats the right kind to take as well. This knowledge could help so many people out there .. if they only knew so I wanted to help spread the word...... It would take some reading and research on your part to be able to help yourself. I am not allowed to put in the dosage of supplements here , but the books I listed will give the answers.
Hello to all,
Kidney stones can be or are caused by too much calcium and lack of Magnesium > Since you are researching. I'd like to direct you to Search "Magnesium and kidney stones". This is one sure sign of lack of Magnesium, also included are gall stones, anxiety, depression, suicidal tendencies, stressed out feeling, tremors, seizures, fear of the unknown, numbness of extremities, pain in extremities, dizziness, high BP, unstable blood sugar, irregular, rapid heart beats, memory loss, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, cramps, - and hundreds more., Dr Carolyn Dean's book is amazing. "The Magnesium Miracle.". It will help you understand your symptoms and have instructions what Magnesium to take and how much, and you will be amazed at what problems lack of Mg can cause. You tube is another good source for searching on Magnesium, several clinicians have recorded their reports and findings. Also make sure to take note of oral magnesium replacement and transdermal Mg at the same time. Oral Mg takes 6 to 12 months before it would build up enough in your system, while transdermal Mg will work instantly but you have to spray it on frequently. I got used to it. I use both but oral replacement is much simpler eventually. I have put my whole household, friends and family on Mg supplementation. You probably will end up doing the same once you do your research. Its best to get the books too. They have further info that won't be on line nor on Youtube.
The other book is "Transdermal Magnesium" by Dr. Mark Sircus... with instructions on how to use it , He is also on You tube. Taking Magnesium will also require including Vit D3, Vit B complex and Calcium rich foods (not pills) for balance.
I wish you all good health, good luck and happiness..
