percocet

How many here have dealt with kidney stones during pregnancy? I am 18 wks 5 days and have a stone that needs to pass. Hurts excessively. I had a stone with my last pregnancy at 34 wks. That time required surgery to remove. If this is not gone by Monday I may be headed that way again.
Anybody aware of an association between treatment and kidney stones? I've had renal colic before, but this is by far the most painful bout. Hepatologist gave green light for Vicodin or Percocet, which are helping. Just wondering if there is a connection between stones and hep c treatment.
I found the percocet to be 100% more effective than the dilaudid for pain management of kidney stones. even though the dilaudid is stronger...the percocet did much more for my pain...so it might be worth switching to that just on that merit alone :-). do they have you on a preventative antibiotic? when is your next follow-up? feel free to msg me if you ever have a question!
I am 21 weeks pregnant and went to the hospital a few days ago in severe pain. Ultrasound revealed that I had water around my kidney and a blockage, which was caused by a kidney stone. I was given an epidural and a stent was inserted, which alleviated my immediate pain. I am now home, and the stent is very uncomfortable; I cannot do any activities because of the pinching and aching it is causing me. I was not given any pain medication or was even told what to expect.
I'm on my last day of antibiotics, and they didn't clear up my symptoms. I have a history of kidney stones, and I'm afraid that's what is going on again. Anybody have any experiences with kidney stones during pregnancy? What did you do for them?
We are hoping that little sister's eye is better and will find out tomorrow if it is healing properly. And now Kidney stones. Poor guy. I have never had them. I never, ever, want them. And now daughter has a bladder infection. Geeeeezzzz..... Ah well...I am hanging in there. I got a free couch from a neighbor over the weekend, so I was able to help out a friend who needed a couch... I gave her my old one.
My kids have given me a run this week!!!! Earlier in the week, my youngest son, 11 was up visiting my brother at his summer house, a little over an hour away. He called me after 10 at night and was crying saying he wanted to come home that he wasn't feeling good. I couldn't convince him to stay. He gets anxious being away from me and tends to do this a lot with sleepovers. He really wants to have sleepovers but he's just not able. But when he came home, he wound up pretty sick ...
I had a CT scan in October (which detected kidney stones) I have had two u/s - one in April and one in July to check for stones. (Stones were the only thing seen). I have had two flat panel x-rays (June/July) prior to each lithotripsy to locate stones. (Stones were the only thing seen). All other tests from my physical are normal. I have an appointment with my PCP next week. I am going to mention endometriosis.
Hunny you've got to get help. There's lithotripsy, diets, and other options IF..... kidney stones are the real issue here. And based on how much you've Been taking, I'm intrigued as to how you don't suffer debilitating withdrawals for 13 days? Have you had an x ray done recently? Cheaper then CT scans. Ultrasound? Stones typically take lots of time to form. Have you had your thyroid checked? Calcium levels? Are u taking tums?
I had kidney stones bad and had to be hospitalized a lot and put on iv pain med but when it was manageable I was on. 1-2 Percocet 5's every 4-6 hrs through out my pregnancys. I only get bad stones while pregnant but my babies were all healthy, well the ones I took the medicine with. If you are in pain take your medicine bonus it help with pregnancy pains...
i began taking percocet about 2 years ago to help with kidney stones and endometriosis pain. 1 to 4 percs a day as needed. after sometime the percs were not helping so i asked my dr for something else. He gave me 10mg oxycotin. i had the script filled 3 times, once for surgery. when i was done with the oxycotin. I went through severe withdrawal, started with depression and quickly progressed into my worst nightmare.
Hello, Long story short, I have a uti,kidney stones and kidney infection. I was ddiagnosed with uti first and was prescribed 5/325 vicodin. Went to the emergency room the next day because Pain was worse. I took 2 percocet around 3 this afternoon then about 7 I took 2 vicodin. It's now 2 a.m. and I've had to take one more percocet about a hour ago. Of course I'm really drowsy but I also have the shakes in my arms and hands. I'm scared to fall asleep. Do you think I've taken too much?
I have neuropothy which is under control with minimal amounts of Norco and methadone ( not a user just no insurance and its cheap). I am having kidney stones and the doctor put me on Percocet and told me to stop the Norco..Is Percocet stronger than Norco? The stones are killing me.
I went to the er and a ct scan showed a 3 cm cyst on my left ovary in addition to revealing the stones (right kidney). I am bloated and aching, and my back and entire abdomen hurts. It's been over a week and half...I am on an antibiotic as well as percocet as it is the only drug that takes the edge off. My question is, how much longer will it take for the stones to pass? Any home remedies for pain and to get these stones on their way? Could these symptoms be something else?
But the waits in between visits is long, and dispite lithrotripy, drinking lots of water and following a diet plan, I keep developing new stones and my problem is getting worse. It's really upsetting. I'm just desperate for some help, some answers to end this pain. I guess my question comes down to this - am I ever going to be stone free, or am I going to continue ending up in the ER constantly? Is there anything else I can do?
I have had 14 kidney stones and 3 surgeries for them. I was given Demerol and Toridol!!!
Nurse talked to me about the symptoms and said it might just be muscle/ligament pain or kidney stones. She told me to take Tylenol and they would check me out at my next appointment, next TUESDAY morning. (they did offer an emergency spot for me today/thursday but it was during class that I couldn't miss even though it meant that I was sitting there in tears during the test). She told me if it got too bad to go back to the ER. Anyways. tylenol isn't touching the pain.
Both my OB and Pain management are aware of me on percocet and I have been very open about it. I am so upset and so depressed about what I am doing to our innocent baby. Please anyone who has any advice, experience, stories, results, I would like to hear it all. Thank you.
Hello, i am a 20 year old student and recently found that i have two kidney stones. I believe they have both moved from my kidney to my bladder and was wondering how long it takes to pass them through my urine once they are already in my bladder. These stones are 1mm and 2mm and also i was wondering to what extent the pain is going to be when i pass them?
Stories like this make me so mad!! As for what can help you, I dont know..ive never had kidney stones but my mom and brother have and nothing helped them when they were in the worst of it either. The only thing i can suggest to you is this... can you get them removed /crushed via ultrasonic waves? I think they call it lithotripsy (sp?). THats what my mom had done..she sat in a hottub and ultrasonic waves thru the water shattered her stones.
I have 2 kids and I feel like when I take the percocet I am a better and more fun more. I like the buzz and like to do more fun things with them. I am really afraid that when I am clean I will not feel that same way. I guess I am just looking for some reassurance with all of this. Can I get through this? Can I deal with the aftermath? Please help me!
Now i have been on here searching for someone with the same problem, I would like to have someone to talk to who is going through the same problems and struggles as i am. So if you have medullary sponge kidney, please please please contact me!
When I was pregnant I had kidney stones and was on iv dialaudid for about 4 days and the dr.'s said that opiates were metabolised very quickly and did not affect the baby a lot. I actually needed a lot of pain killers for various things during my pregnancy (i had triplets:) and they are perfect and beautiful. I'm sure it's not the best thing but my ob rx them so it must be accepted. Good luck and enjoy being pregnant!
Well, my mouth still feels raw, and am getting more little blisters, and I think it may be a reaction from the Percocet. Bob, I know you are gonna make it, and my heart will be with you. I know it won't be an easy thing to do, but you will make it because you want to. I am trying to find a site on aol, that use to be here, ask a dr or something like that. Do you know what I'm referring to? Have a great holiday yourself, if I don't hear from you before.
I appreciate your post and all the info..I didn't give my whole history of kidney stones but...they are calcium stones, and I have been taking hydrochlorothiazide and a citric acid suppliment...I have done a 24 hr urine collection and done all i can do....the prevention methods haven't seemed to help. even have tried taking uriflow...actually that's when my most recent problem started.. a 4 mm stone got lodged in my ureter...don't worry i'm still taking the uriflow though...
Hello Everyone, I could really use your help. I am feeling overwhelmed and fearful. My life changed forever when I ended up in the ER five years ago with the worst pain of my life. I will never forget the doctor telling me that not only was I passing a large kidney stone (which freaked me out by itself) but that both of my kidneys were riddled with stones. Over the years my body has just continued to make them.
I'll give a little history and then to my questions and concerns... I was diagnosed with chronic interstitial cystitis, I have multiply stones in each kidney and was very recently diagnosed with chronic hep c as well. I started taking narcotics for the pain about five years ago, shortly after having my son. I then had about four surgeries.
I guess I am fortunate but I have ttaken pain meds on and off since my second trimester for very bad UTIs, kidney stones and back issues. But I NEVER withdrawl from the meds, I can take them for a while and stop and it doesn't bother me, does that mean the baby won't suffer withdrawls either?
I've never had them but I've heard kidney stones are terrible and people often say it's worse than labor. But you have such a problem with them, you may want to see a real specialist; someone that's considered an expert in the field. Not sure where you are or where your physician is in relation to where you live, but I know for me I wouldn't go to my local, suburban doc; I'd be in Boston at one of the major hospitals.
Percacet and vicoden are safe. I also have kidney stones. I'm 25 wks and have had them since ten weeks. Its so painful. Sometimes mine take weeks to pass... make sure u drink a ton of water. Hope u feel better!! Also a heating pad helps. Every time I have an attack I end up in l & d cuz it causes me to cramp.
