Hi guys, Im back! I have been on a bumpy ride for the last few weeks. I have a nerve block on November 29th. It lasted 5 weeks. during this time I started getting pain in my kidney. I have a history of stones. I went to the hospital and they filled me full of morphine and then sent me home with a script for 10mg morphine. Did that ever make me sick, but I was fine a few days later. BUT,my urethra was hurting, this went on for about 4 weeks. On monday night I woke in pain but managed to go back to sleep for an hour. 3 am woke in excruciating pain. in my lower right belly (very distended) my kidney and my urethra. I thought I was going to die. called an ambulance and they took me to the hospital. I was screming and crying and throwing up everywhere. Long story short (yea, i know im not good at short stories :) ) they kept me in the emergency in a hall way until 7:00 pm on wednesday. They sent me home with a perscription for 2mg dilaudid. That wasn't working so I put on 25mcg patch. The patch worked great, but ancles and feet started to swell. I just can't pee on the patch. I was told to drink lots of water but I am afraid to because im not peeling. Took off the patch last night and went back to dilauded. my pain has almost gone but of course my neck is killing me. I have an appointment with urologist on tuesday morning. He said he had never heard of fentanyl causing water retention and swelling. Have any of you experienced this? I will ask doctor to switch me to oxycontin 30 mg x2 day until they fix my neck on Feb. 24th. SANTA WAS VERY GOOD TO ME THIS YEAR. So incase I have all of you very confused, should I drink alot of water this week end?
Thank you for reading this missive. I apoligize with the time line. I am not good with dates or time, and everything is a little fuzzy,
