P_RN, you're right. The pain is almost as bad as pushing out a nine pounder, all right. Actually, the pain feels just like contractions. When my husband had a stone a few years ago, I had already had one and told him that it would be the closest he'd ever get to understanding labor pain.
prmenrs, Thanks for the heads up on the fluids. When I think fluids, I think H20, and I never realized that one could get water intoxication! Good excuse for me to get a mountian dew, anyway.
I went to a walk in clinic today, and the Doc ordered an immediate shot of toradol, I think 60 mg IM. It helped to bring the pain from a nine to about a four, but I still felt it. He prescribed cipro (250 mg) and vicoprofen (7.5 mg/200 mg.) I took one and it helped with the pain some, but not great relief. I think the only way I can get relief is to sleep, and they definately helped with that, so they're working.
Unfortunately, they also are making me nauseated. I ate with them, like the pharmacist suggested, but hydrocodone always makes me sick. I haven't puked, thank God, but I don't feel 100%.
The doc said I could miss school, but didn't say for how long, and I'm wondering if I should try to go to class tomorrow. The vicoprofen doesn't make me feel high or anything, just a little sleepy.
Thanks for the support, guys~
