The doctor and many others have shared the ominous "encouragement" that my "stone is large enough" that I will "definitely know it" when I finally ever pass it. (Today is hubby's birthday so I am PRAYING that nothing emergent happens today, as I was moving to the rehab hospital for his birthday 2 years ago and don't even have memories of last birthday, so would really not like to make more bad memories on this date or cause drama this year!)
Kendra, high protein/low carb is something that often contributes to stones. :( I doubt that, alone, was the culprit in my case, perhaps not even a contributing factor, as the stone is large enough he says I probably have carried it since before the strokes, but hours (day, weeks, months, years now) of primarily sitting in a recliner with my feet up probably threw my kidney at a different angle so much that the stone was now able to work up and out of the lowest lobe of the kidney and start causing issues. But as a precaution in the future, he says the diet isn't a good idea for the kidneys.
Oh and Kathy, the paperwork never made it to DMV so my driver's license, has in fact, now been revoked. :( Thanks for going to great lengths to try to help me resolve the situation. It is what it is.
