I spent Easter Sunday and part of Monday in the hospital loaded with morphine for stones in both kidneys. They gave my 5 bags of I.V. fluid and I still have the stones. They won't pass and I am in constant pain ranging from a 3 - 10 at any point of the day. The Urologist says they are to small to do Lithotripsy (blasting). I am now taking vicodin and ready to switch to percocet for the pain. I hate taking the pain pills but I hate the pain even more. I was only able to work 8 hours this past week and that is the most frustrating part to me. Does any one have any suggestions that might help make these stones pass?
