I am a 36 year old female that was diagnosed with MSK in 2009. At that time, after multiple lithotripsies and a large hematoma on my left kidney, I was told that I had a large stone that was too high up in my kidney to do anything about. I have been in constant pain since then. Fast forward to June 2011, and the 9mm stone has finally moved to where it can be dealt with. Two lithotripsies and bilateral stints down, who knows what's next? My question is, I have been in excruciating pain and my urologist won't prescribe anything that works. I am allergic to morphine, dialotid, and hydrocodone. He did prescribe toradol once, but after I'd finished taking it he told me it damages the kidneys. I told him I don't need anymore problems with my kidneys, so now all he will prescribe is tylenol 3 which I have told him repeatedly, doesn't work. I broke down and called his office the other day in tears because I was in so much pain, and the nurse discussed with me several things she could call in. After speaking with the doctor, she called me back and said he's giving me tylenol 3. I don't understand why he won't listen to me..I am not just after drugs, I survived the last 2 years without any pain meds at all. I can't walk by the end of the day and I have 2 young children to take care of. I don't want to be high all the time, I want to be able to function. What else can I do? People tell me to find another doctor, but how do I know the next one will be any better? Even my nephrologist tried to prescribe hydrocodone, even though it's plastered all over my charts that I'm allergic to it. I'm at my wits end and not sure where to turn. Do I have any options at all?
