    • I’ve had kidney stones for the last 7+ years(largest was 5.5mm) & now the bladder infections. I can’t get off 1 Rx when it starts all over again. Fever, pain(in the kidney area,bladder area, lower back pain), always blood in the urine. And so many pills that are supposed to help. HA! Gout & uric acid stones are friends- even when I follow are the diets, take my med.s, & drink water like a fish, it still doesn’t help. I AM SICK TO DEATH OF DOCTORS, TESTS & MEDICINE!!!   I guess by now you all have figured out that this AM is not a good one. I’m hurting, depressed(b/c I have to call the Dr.,again, call my hubby @ work to let him know what I’ve been hiding from him(I’m ashamed to tell him how bad it is -1 more time), ruin everyone’s day, can’t get any work done, feel useless & helpless. Even w/ insurance, we’ve spent up to $20,000/yr. on me Dr. visits, tests, & the Med.s are soooo expensive. 2 years ago I went through a 9 week period where I passed 3 stones-1 stone,hosp.stay, stent removal(my body rejects them every time but Dr. says they stay in for @ least 5=7 days-such pain, then this is repeated 3 more times!! I got stuck in the hosp.(IV’s) 36 times in 9 weeks!!!  Veins are no good in left are now.
      Thanks for listening.. Don’t know how nuch more of this I can take. Allw/ everything else going on.
