306867 tn?1299249709 Mary, Their is a rule of thumb for gallbladder disease. the 3 F's. Female, fat and forty. Gallbladder disease of course affects more than just those mentioned and of course I don't like the 3 F's. If GB disease and addiction were connected, their would be many forty something overwheight women at the pharmacy or waiting for their dealer to call them.
Avatar f tn More like a contract not to accept opiates from anyone else. Fentanyl is a powerful drug and if your using the patch form it takes longer to get in and out of your system should you have complications with it.
Avatar f tn I am taking motrin for the kidney pain and drinking lots of water and lying on a heating pad to help. I know that I will have to take drugs again especially if I get blocked with big stones but I will try everything else before I go to them. I wish I never went to a Pain doctor. I had no idea what this stuff can do to your body. I wish I knew before I signed up. I always thought my Mom was addicted to the high. But I think she did not have the courage to go through WD.
Avatar m tn I have developed chronic kidney disease and my doctors are pushing me to get some exercise. I have found that with every exercise form I have tried I quickly get beyond the pain control offered bu tramadol and lortab so i can't exercise. i have a great pain management doctor and he prescribed duragesic patches after I told him I was concerned about being on lortab all the time to combat the pain caused by exercise.
Avatar n tn I had surgery and was given fentanyl and nearly 2 mos later still shows up on drug test. I only have 1 kidney, but I'm still totally shocked and it has caused me bad problems as the dr doesn't believe me when I tell him I did not take this from the street! I don't even know how to get this from the street per se! Please has anyone else had this issue with fentanyl?
Avatar m tn Most days it still feels like my kidney is still there and hurts exactly like it did when I had kidney infections or kidney stones. When I had my surgery they cut me from back ribcage to the front below my bladder so there is a lot of nerves that were severed during the surgery. Most of the time if feels like my kidney is huge and taking up too much space inside and under my ribcage, so the pain is not just right in the nerve endings.
Avatar f tn and 7 root canal need almost 50 grand of work done on my teeth b/c of the bladder meds I take, and alll the bladder and kidney infections I had. So I ran out Friday night and this a cake walk compared to fentanyl. Don't get me wrong I still feel like **** big time. The 1st 3 days were the worst with the severe leg cramps and anxiety, diareah. On the 4th I felt so much better but today which is the 5th I feel like ****. My lower back hurts soooo bad, I have anxiety even with xanax.
Avatar f tn I am 22 and have just found out I have kidney disease. I do not want to tell my family, because I know they wouldn't deal with it very well. Is it likely to be easy keeping this from them (I live with them)? I am considering not receiving any treament for now to make extra certain family don't find out.
410475 tn?1262942367 the test were run when I was still on fentanyl and the others like viocoden and norco. and, no I never drink. the viocoden contains a lot of tylenol which I know isn't good for the liver, but do not know about the kidneys, this is scaring me.
Avatar f tn Oh, boy, you poor thing. I can't imagine being unconscious for that long. That is truly frightening. What doctor is following you on this? Is it your primary care or a nephrologist? Do you still have to have dialysis? Have they recommended physical therapy for you to help you get walking normally? I think you have a lot of questions to ask your doctor about.
Avatar m tn Could my BUN have been normal and still have kidney disease or failure, and also no protein was found in my urine, soo......????
Avatar m tn i have kidney disease my creantine 2.12 my gfr 33.5 my normal is 1.
Avatar f tn Hi there, about a month and a half ago I started feeling like something was always under both my ribs and it has been persistently like this and it's really uncomfortable, I'm also always itchy at night and have been feeling really dizzy and lightheaded constantly. I've went to my doctors and they took my bloods and all that came up was that my potassium levels were slightly high.

387767 tn?1345872027 Be sure to discuss all recommended vaccines with your veterinarian. A cat with kidney disease or kidney failure should not be vaccinated at all. Long-term feeding of an all-dry-food diet is also suspected as a factor in Chronic Renal Failure. Cats' kidneys are highly efficient and adapted to life in the desert, where they would get most or all of their water from eating their prey.
Avatar f tn Im very sick and cant get anyone to help. Ive even had a dr tell me he wont diagnose me with kidney disease until I get insurance so I got insurance and they denied coverage before he even diagnosed me. I then had to quit working due to illness. Now Ive got no job and no insurance and no help. What do all these results mean? Whats the next step? Who will help me?
Avatar n tn Hello, The symptoms are definitely suggestive of kidney disease. You should get an ultrasound kidneys and kidney function tests done to confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn Obviously, he has severe anemia and no amount of iron will fix this kind. I have never heard of chemotherapy for kidney disease or kidney damage. I have kidney damage (kidney disease) due to an autoimmune disease. Kidney function is at 26% now, up from 20%. Autoimmune disease is in remission since I had all the mercury fillings removed from my teeth.
Avatar n tn I would encourage both of you to talk with his endocrinologist about looking into possible changes that can bring his a1c levels well down below 7. That truly is his best protection not only against kidney disease, but against other complications. If sugar levels are maintained at near normal levels, damage cannot happen.
Avatar f tn I have a 14 year old cocker spaniel who was recently diagnosed with kidney disease. She originally got sick a few weeks ago with pacreatitis, and when she recovered her lab work showed the kidney problems. We have been giving her fluids every other night as well as the epakitin powder with her food. Her blood report was better this last time. However she seems pretty good, has a good appetite ect and I'm wondering if there is anything else that could be causing this disease?

Avatar f tn Thank you for your reply! I'm going to look into University pain clinics up in the DC area. It's a 2 hr drive but still that's not too bad and if someone can help me it's worth it. I had some changes since I last wrote. A couple days ago I had some stronger than usual flank pain and since it was day one of my patch it was kind of suspicious (it's not odd for me to have pain - but usually it's stronger when the patch has worn down some).
Avatar m tn Later this week I have an appointment with a doctor who treats Hep C and who is part of a group that has been running various clinical trials on HepC drugs. I'm getting my questions together as I want to be prepared for the office visit and I have concerns with regards to HepC TX and kidney disease. I am Genotype 1a and had TX (pegalyated interferon and ribavirin) ten years ago but relapsed after a viral breakthrough at 6 months.
Avatar f tn Hi, The two main causes of chronic kidney disease are diabetes and high blood pressure. Glomerulonephritis,inherited kidney diseases, congenital conditions and infection may also be responsible. A lot of studies have linked soda to diabetes. Though drinking soda will not directly cause diabetes, it adds extra calories to the diet that may cause weight gain, increasing the risk for developing diabetes.
