I went to the ER last Friday and was admitted into labor and delivery after about 6 hours. Turns out they just think I have kidney stones, but aren't 100% sure. They did an ultrasound which is not always successful in detecting kidney stones, and since I am 22 weeks pregnant they obviously couldn't do a CT scan.
It's been over a week now and I still have not passed the stone. I started out on Tylenol with Codeine and it did not help at all so they put me on Vicoden. The Vicoden is no longer helping my pain at all.
This morning I woke up at 345 and the pain did not go away until about 10am. I was throwing up and crying because the pain was so great.
Lately I've been waking up in the middle of the night because of the pain, and I just don't know what to do anymore. If I wake up this morning I want to go back to the ER because this pain is getting unbearable, or should I just wait it out at home and suffer the pain?
