Re: Because this is a well visited forum, I need some help.
So there is no evidence of stones and the only pain med that works for you are iv narcotics? While I'm not saying I don't believe you, that is a classic presentation of pain seeking behavior. So I really don't blame dr y. You're asking him to give you a very heavy medication (IV dilaudid might as well be heroin for all intensive purposes) with no real objective evidence of there even being a problem. He has to protect his license.
That said, I think your best bet is to go to a pain clinic or explore having the stents placed while you are pregnant. Ive seen it done before.
Nothing I say ever constitutes medical advice.
