If I could pass this kidney stone then life could go on. Never had one before so I did not know what was going on. Pain on my left side that would not go away. Went to the ER Wednesday night. Cat scan to confirm it. I was dehydrated and that did not help. But problem now is that I am backed up. Side effect of the pain medication. It is good to have nurse as a wife. Making me drink fluids and stuff to get the plumbing unclogged.
