  • cathyjo says
    my almost 21 yo who goes to school in Chicago was in a Chicago ER last night with what he thot was a kidney stone
  • cathyjo says
    Kidney stone has not produced yet--but doc says swollen lymphnodes around kidney area
  • cathyjo says
    w/ no kidney stone produced, doc wants him to see another doctor
  • cathyjo says
    He had cat scan, MRI, Blod tests, and ultra sound
  • cathyjo says
    He has been having kidney stones since he was 16--about one ayear
  • cathyjo says
    never before while all by himself tho
  • lorisheldon says
    I guess it is good that the Dr. is being thorough
  • cathyjo says
    he's a little freaked, but doing okay on painkillers
  • cathyjo says
    we may go up this week just to give TLC in person
  • lorisheldon says
    ok, so he does have a history of them - in an odd way I suppose that is good? oh how painful :-(
  • cathyjo says
    we are in SC< he is in Chicago
  • Colemama says
    it is so tough to be away from home when having a health issue...hope you can visit soon!
  • cathyjo says
    he is one tough cookie tho--i'll say that
  • lorisheldon says
    dear friend passed kidney stone and had 2 c-sections she said the sections were nothing compared to the stone
  • megbg says
    sending good wishes to him and to you
  • cathyjo says
    yeah--he has been a very sick puppy each time
  • cathyjo says
    He really has gootten good at detecting the onset
  • LParisi
    You should go up. I ended up in hospital when I went to college and was soooo happy to see my mommy.
  • cathyjo says
    so much easier to just go to the doctor than to the ER
  • fsinfo asks
    does he have support here in Chicago? I am in suburbs of Chicago if he needs anything
  • cathyjo says
    fsinfo wow that is awesome I will let youknow
  • lnitsche says
    Oh cathyjo how hard for you. When daughter was in college, she had multiple visits to er for migraines/seizures. My heart goes out to you!
  • cathyjo says
    his roommate came to the ER and made sure he got home okay
  • cathyjo says
    I am just worried about the mention of swollen lymph nodes
  • cathyjo says
    never have heard a doctor say that before, but when they couldnt find the stone, they were checking everything
  • digimom will
    say a prayer for him
  • fsinfo says
    tried to send you private plurk got an error message so sent you DM tweet
  • blong hopes
    stone materializes & passes soon. I'll be thinking of you and your family.
  • bknittle says
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your son.
  • cathyjo says
    will do. He is feeling fine on the painkillers but i dont want him to "like" them a lot. He's always been a fairly healthy kiddo
  • cathyjo says
    He missed all of 2 days K-12
  • cathyjo says
    he eats absolutely NO JUNK
  • cathyjo says
    his KS are not calcium based
  • cathyjo says
    whatever that means
  • techtiger says
    kidney stones are terrible!Your family is in my prayers.
  • cathyjo says
    but he does feel better knowing Mom and Dad will come up to go with him to the dr
  • cathyjo says
    looking like his kidney stone issue is a life sentence, huh?
  • megbg says
    I have a friend who has had that...she stays away from ALL caffeine, seems to help
  • dmcordell says
    You know we'll help any way we can. My brother gets kidney stones and can still run rings around me. It's horrible but not life threatening.
  • CSouthard is
    thinking of you and sending good thoughts your way. Hope the docs figure out what's happening and that your son has a quick recovery.
  • cathyjo says
    megbg he skips all caffeine 2. Sigh. Thanks all for helping my wrap my mind around it.
  • fsinfo says
    check your gmail
  • fsinfo says
    my son's girlfriend is a nurse and she says swollen lymph glands mean infection of some sort
  • cathyjo says
    he will be going to another doctor in the next few days. Sigh.
  • JackieB
