    Did you get blood thinners or thrombolytics?

    Wow thanks for the info guys, trying to diminish the stupidity I post...

    So, in essence, you took meds and had to rest in the hospital, but now you need to work out regularly for it to vanish, while enduring the pain?

    Are you taking any painkillers?

    Being stuck all day in bed and resting is BORING anyway! I have a wicked gash under my foot from slicing it open on a broken beer bottle over the weekend, and had to miss work today and I can't really walk around much.... I am definitely going to work tomorrow and will endure the pain of walking around and such because if I'm stuck at home doing nothing for even one more day I will go nuts...

    PS. I wish you a speedy recovery LTF!

    Blood test yesterday shows no more shots in belly...Thats good news since my belly is all black and blue from them..

    Bu today doc called back and I have blood in urine...I do have history of stones, but I only have a small one right now..

    So he needs a re check of urine and wants ultra sound of kidneys, trying to get me in today or tomorrow

    I am really hoping for it to show ONLY a kidney stone as mostly anything else might be bad..

    I was on anti biotics for last 2 weeks for an infection of cellulitis...So one would think no infections in kidneys

    No, nowadays most lawyers who deal with it (at least in Brazil) are specialized lawyers with medical background.

    (So, you know, they don't make such idiotic remarks as I did)

    THAT was the most painful experience I've ever had (physical-wise). Couldn't possibly fathom HOPING to have Kidney Stones...

    Feel sorry for you man. As always, get well soon.

    Everything seems to be normal now...I did have ultra sound on kidneys that could not be read, something about maybe kidney stones but hard to tell...So need cat scan on those now..

    But all my blood clot issues are under control now

    Thanks for the kind thoughts, meant a lot!
