We are back home after a few tears on my part, and have treated ourselves to sweet and sour chicken from the supermarket rather than me have to cook something.
We were at the hospital for six and a half hours today (only £2 to park, so that bit works) and it is as we suspected.
Hubby has a kidney stone.
It is very small and high up in the kidney, so no need for further treatment and Hubby has been recommended to drink more water or lime juice to help dissolve it.
There is no sign of a hernia (shove that where the sun don’t shine Mr HHA), and because his INR is out of range, he was told to make an emergency appointment for a INR blood test tomorrow.
We tried to ring the surgery on the way home but I was put on hold and being on a mobile, that is not cheap, so we drove to the surgery.
For a change the receptionist looked more than 12 and had some common sense, so he has an appointment with the INR nurse at 10.45 tomorrow morning.
It’s a relief all round as everything else has been ruled out now.
We are both mentally drained as it’s been a horrible week. Walking Maggie tonight we worked out we’ve clocked up over 250 miles, more than we do in a fortnight.
Thank you all for your kind wishes. I really appreciate it.
