I'm new here and was hoping to feel less alone. I have medullary sponge kidney, some spinal cord damage from a car accident and am waiting to get my gall bladder out.
I take 3 percocedt 5/325 a day with 2 50mg ultram, 100mg of allopurinal, and 3x 1080potassium citrate. It manages my kidney pain and back pain but my gall bladder is unbearable. I've tried 3x to have a hydascan only to get violently ill when the cck is introduced. It's not blocked just not functioning at all. I've dropped 6lbs this month alone because I get sick.
I know it's not my normal meds as I've been on this dose since 2007 and it's managed by my nephrologist.
Does anyone have any advice or alternatives? I'm scared of needles but will acupuncture work? Yoga, supplements? I just want to be able to be a good mom to my 2 year old but it hurts so bad.. And I am tired from not sleeping or eating.
