Had a lady come in once with abd pain, told me she hadn't been to the bathroom in about 4 days and had taken some mag citrate at home and her tummy was cramping but she still couldn't go. Sh was hurting bad, diaphoretic etc. Doc swore she had a stone, put in an IV gave phenergan and dilaudid, sent her for an IVP, Scout films clearly showed FOS with a huge amount of stool in the ascending colon. She goes to IVP, comes back .."let me out of this bed, I've got to go to the bathroom". She went, pain resolved. No stone on IVP.
At work last night, I gave Mso4 8 mgsIV push for a bladder infection!:chuckle
