Re: Because this is a well visited forum, I need some help. Update #29

I apologize for misunderstanding. You had a couple of posts in this thread and the previous one about returning unused oral narcotics and having had lots of oral narcotics and taking vicodan several times recently. I misunderstood and thought that you had multiple bottles of narcotics at home.

Start calling all the urologists in your area and ask if they would treat a pregnant woman with visible stones on radiologic tests? Don't even bother going into one that says no.

I agree with this. I would also consider talking to your OB about referral to a perinatolgist. A perinatologist should be better positioned to help with your pain and likely has better contacts with other specialists who work with pregnant women.

When I came back to check this thread, I missed it and wound up doing a search. In that search I clicked on one of your threads from a couple of months ago. I saw that you wanted a PICC line to make it easier to get meds and to rehydrate. I wanted to mention that if you are asking your urologist or the ER docs for a PICC line, they may find that suspicious. A PICC won't generally remain in place the remainder of your pregnancy and it would be unusual to put in a PICC for intermitent pain medication or to rehydrate an otherwise healthy young woman.
