Pain killers during pregnancy

I am 36 weeks pregnant and recently found out that I had a kidney stone. The pain is so unbareable! The doctor put me in the hospital for 2 days to try to flush me out, but sent me home still in pain. He put me on Hydrocort. 5's and that seems to help me manage the pain. But I'm not so sure about taking these pain killers until my stones pass. Can someone give me advice or information on this matter. It would really help me come down! Thanks

You probably mean hydrocodone or something similar.  Commonly used, and good medication for pain that can accompany kidney stones.  Used all the time for such conditions at your gestation.  

If your pain is not improving or getting worse, you should let your doctor know right away.
