Ended up having kidney stones and now the urologist feels given the CT scan results I need a surgical procedure that will scope my bladder and kidneys. It's not a big surgery but requires general anesthesia. I so don't want to be put under again-every time I have surgery more brain dies lol. I'm afraid the pre-op nurses are going to think I'm over reacting but I'm going to insist that they are extremely careful when they position me for the operation. My left knee is bone on bone (2 surgeries) my right hip is riddled with arthritis, my lower spine is being treated with facett joint injections in 4 locations, and my cervical spine has survived 3 surgeries. I do not want them tossing me around like a sack of potatoes when I'm out of it and can't scream. The kidney problem may be the result of the medications I take for nerve pain, arthritis, and diabetes. Thanks for listening...Am I being a big baby?
