Heating pads will be your best friends. I was hospitalized at 20 weeks with kidney stones and until I passed them and afterward heating pads were the only thing that helped. Drink a lot of water and stay hydrated, that'll help you feel better faster. The internal swelling should go down within a week or so of getting rid of the stones. Good luck!
I am plagued with them with this makes 4 out of 6 pregnancies. Its very bad but heating pads help. They should of hooked you up with pain killers. I had surgery with one and almost nothing helped... they said I could lose my kidneys if I had another baby... the only thing that got me through were pain killers, stool softener and heating pads.
Thank you both very much. I do use the heating pads it's takes the edge of for a bit and as fat as pain meds they did send me home with some but I am very concerned on how they affect the baby. I feel uncomfortable taking them and so my pain just never subsides. I guess I need to pick and choose.. right?
