My name is Sharee.
I am 27 and I live in New Zealand.
I have bad health, i spend a few weeks to a months worth of time in the hospital each year and in the last 12 months I have almost lost my life twice
Due to my health, I do not work or study and have crippling depression. I however do my best to keep my head above water and stick around for my loved ones. Though as people who have had mental illness know, it's not easy and sometimes you fall.
ALL sad stuff aside, I am generally cheerful, kind, supportive and generous. I do my best to convey my feelings to the people I care for. I can be a bit anti social sometimes BUT when the chips are down, I will always have their back. Always.
I Love Gaia and the people here, feel free to talk to me if you see me around. ESPECIALLY if you want to talk about cats.
I'm worried about kidney damage. The hospital discharge record stated that I had some mild hydronephrosis, which is kidney swelling. The stone removed was nearly an inch long. I have the medical image of the stone removed. My surgeon printed it out & gave it to my husband when I was in post-op recovery. There was no chance of it passing on its own but it was astonishing that it moved out of the kidney & traveled so far down in the right ureter because people generally do not pass stones larger than 5mm because they are large enough to get stuck. Ureter must be stretched or something due to how frequently I get these kidney stones. Might be why my body pushed out the stent that ran from the kidney to the bladder in less than 8 hours after the first surgery on Tuesday. You're definitely NOT supposed to pass the stent like that. It's the first time in 30 years of practice that my doctor has seen this happen.
I swear, you must understand me better than anyone due to your severe health issues too. We both end up in the hospital far too often my dear. *hugs* I hope your week is going well. I love you, ya know! We must have been sisters in a past life.
Gonna call first thing this morning. The only prob is that my urologist is out of town for a few days. Freezing my a** off but my body temp 102.2 degrees. Took a fever reducer. I'm already on plenty of antibiotics too. If things go wrong with THIS stent, a nephrostomy tube will gey put into the kidney to drain urine. Really afraid of that because I'm already in pain.
Things are going badly again after the surgeries this week. Now I'm running a fever even though I'm on a lot of antibiotics. So worried that I'll be back in the hospital again for the third time this week. If I die for whatever reason, I'll make sure Matt logs me in to tell you.And you would inherent everything on my Gaia account.
