Need health vibes for hubby. He may be experiencing another
kidney stone. The difference this time, no health insurance.

Please cross your fingers that it's just a muscle spasm, or if it is a stone, that it resolves itself without complications?


Thanks! :grouphug:

2. have him start drinking tons of water
had a friend stuck in Africa back country with one - that is what his travel doc advised since there was no way to get to any real help

it eventually flushed out after a couple painful days

8. Ouch!
Keeping all crossable body parts crossed for your DH. That's enough pain without adding the stress of having to worry about the cost!

10. Oh dear... I hope it is something else, or just a tiny little sucker
that pops right out.

The thought of stones makes me cringe. I had a 1cm stone that took months to resolve including two surgeries and an 8 day hospital stay with stenting.

13. Sending warm and healing vibes
How I WISH I lived in a country where people did not have to suffer because of a lack of available health care. It just should not be that way.

14. Ouch.
MRI from my husband's kidney stone billed at $3,500
we ended up paying max $750 out-of-pocket (we have
insurance).

Maybe ask the doctor how they
determined a kidney stone
diagnosis BEFORE we had the MRI machines.

Good Luck!
