Since there were so many of you offering your prayers and kind words, I just wanted to take a second to update everyone on my surgery hunt!
This morning my butter bean and I went in for an appointment at a urologist’s office.
They looked at all of my tests that have been done in the ER over the past year, and said they wished they could have done surgery YESTERDAY.
I apparently have MULTIPLE stones in BOTH kidneys, ureters, and my bladder. The main stone causing me problems, that I was originally told was measuring 6 mm by the ER, is a minimum of 10 mm!
I will be having surgery sometime in the next week (hopefully). They will be busted the main stone with a laser and then using a basket like tool to catch as many of the other stones as possible.
There is extensive permanent damage, which we won’t know the full extent of until surgery, but the inflammation and swelling will never go down completely. I will also have to have a stint placed for sometime to prevent my ureter from collapsing on itself.
I appreciate everyone’s kind words, encouragement, and especially your prayers throughout this entire process. I ask for continued prayer moving forward for a successful surgery and that a solution is found to prevent future stones!
