In fact in more ways than one, especially when you have sudden sharp unexplained pains.
You see, for several weeks now I have had moderate to severe pain around my kidneys, especially the right one. I have had blood & urine tests, but they didn't pick up anything abnormal. So my Doctor referred me to a Urologist, I will be seeing one in Price (UT) on December 1st for a consult. It will be interesting to see what s/he says... I don't even care so much if it's not a quick fix as long as I can finally get some answers about why I have had this pain.
Last year on March 17, I had a very bad bladder infection which quickly became an extremely severe kidney infection (if one can believe the ER doc) in my right kidney. In late April, I was still experiencing some residual pain around my kidney so I got to have a CT scan in early May, the result of that was that the lymph nodes around the kidney were inflamed -- the Dr told me that given time, between 4 to 10 weeks, they would heal & be okay. By the end of May, I felt completely better. But now this... *sighs* So it's life.
